DID YOU KNOW.......
Bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world; it can grow 35 inches in a single day.
During the 1600s, tulips were so valuable in Holland that their bulbs were worth more than gold. The craze was called tulip mania, or tulipomania, and caused the crash of the Dutch economy. Tulips can continue to grow as much as an inch per day after being cut. Even today they are more expensive than standard tulips. You can usually see the difference because Dutch tulips are taller and the bloom is sometimes larger.
