FAST GROWING PLANTS

Bamboo grows incredibly quickly, which is one reason it is often used to make sustainable, eco-friendly products. 
Some species can literally grow 10 centimeters per day! If you actually had the patience to sit there all day, you would notice the growth by the end of it.

Ferns are reproduced from spores that are gathered in clusters called sori, which are usually on the underside of the fronds. The spores can be yellow, green, brown, or black.
