This type of flooring is very eco-friendly because bamboo is a highly renewable source of energy. Similar to grass, bamboo grows much faster than any other wood. Moso Bamboo, the primary species used for the manufacturing of floor planks, grows up to 24 m high in 40 to 50 days. It usually takes 3-5 days for bamboo to reach its full maturity. The traditional type of wood takes 20–120 years to mature completely.
