Minecraft Bamboo, Where to Find it & How to Grow it

You can often find Minecraft Bamboo within Jungle Biomes, it's spread throughout this distinct environmental region within the game. It's not uncommon, but certainly a niche item to come across while exploring out there. You'll find it more common within specific bamboo areas that are in the jungle biomes, but these areas are not widely available. For those unable to find it naturally within the world, you can kill an adorable Panda for up to three possible pieces of the building material.

It can also be located by fishing within the biome and granted as a junk item. The final method is looking in chests that can be found within the biome, which again gives a stack of up to three pieces. The bamboo can then be grown similar to sugar canes if you'd like to make more of it. It can be grown within dirt; grass blocks, sand, mycelium, podzol, coarse dirt or red sand. If you add bone meal it'll accelerate the growth with extra possible blocks. These stalks of bamboo can get to a height of about 12–16 blocks tall. When in your inventory you can have the item in stacks of up to sixty-four, like most items within the game. Minecraft Bamboo, Where to Find it & How to Grow it

Uses and Other Details:
Aside from just collecting or farming it, the material has many uses within the game. You can use it for the process of breeding the pandas to produce off-spring creatures. It will take a number of the material to do so, but you'll get great results with more of the lovely creatures. Pandas also just generally eat the material. You're able to use bamboo as fuel though it doesn't give great results within the furnace.

If you want a new decoration, they can be thrown in flower pots to show off within the homestead. Crafting wise you can put two together to make a regular stick or create scaffolding with them. This requires six pieces of bamboo with three per side and a string in the middle, very helpful item. That's about it for how to find Minecraft Bamboo and how to grow it.
