Why do bamboos have leaves that encircle the stem? (Is it for some kind of structure support?) Also, why are there leaves at the top of the plant on lateral branches? There is graffiti at the base of some of the bamboo shoots. Why doesn't the graffiti grow higher up the shoot as the plant gains height?
