Bamboo Plant Support Sticks
Bamboo is an excellent material for cheap and light plant support sticks, stakes or props. In Central America, Bambusa vulgaris poles were used for many years to prop bananas for United Fruit. The poles were often treated with creosote to extend their service life.
Bamboo stakes are also used as bean poles or to support the growth of vegetables, fruits and flowers as shown in some of the picture examples below.
