The top two blocks have leaves at the third block, and at the fourth block, the Bamboo expands 3×3 pixels. As the Bamboo grows, the leaves grow up and stay at the top three blocks. It changes their hitbox as it grows. The bamboo plant can produce 12-16 blocks.
Bamboo can be planted on grass blocks, dirt, coarse dirt, gravel, mycelium, podzol, sand, or red sand. Using bone meal speeds up the growth and grows by 1 to 2 blocks.
Bamboo crops are eaten by panda babies to fasten their growth. Bamboo crops can also be used to breed pandas. Players can feed the pandas bamboos and mate to have a baby.
