Bamboo is a type of flora that appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It cannot be found naturally in the Town and must be bought from Leif when his shop is upgraded in the T&T Emporium where they are sold for 3,000 Bells. Bamboo shoots can be sold at Re-Tail for 700 Bells each and 1,500 Bells each with the bell boom. Bamboo shoots can also be received from villagers after completing errands very rarely. Bamboo grows under the same condition as trees and cannot grow adjacent to another tree, object or bamboo.
To plant bamboo, the player must equip a shovel and plant them similar to trees. After three days, the bamboo will mature into bamboo stalks. Once fully grown bamboo will produce shoots which can be dug up with the shovel. However, when the shoots are reburied they will instantly plant themselves and cannot be picked up without destroying them, similar to flower bags. Non-planted bamboos appear as a Crack in the ground.
Leaving a Bamboo for extended periods will cause it to grow until its progress is stopped by either overpopulation or inability to grow due to walls, objects or trees. Large numbers of bamboo growing unintentionally can be an irritation.
