Default Plant info needed, ASAP

We have just been given an 8' bamboo plant :-) Before I move it in, I want
to be sure that it's not toxic to cats, dogs (or babies). Anybody know?

TIA

If it grows bamboo shoots, send them to me, so I can eat them.

I never tried to grow it, but this link appears to be helpful:

I like one quote from it: 'It did not get the title of "fastest
growing woody plant on earth!" for nothing!'

I'm going to refrain from making the comment I'd originally
intended. I'm going to be strong.

You are to be congratulated for your forbearance. :-)

Bamboo is not toxic, and some animals find it quite tasty. Unless you
want your entire yard to be a bamboo forest and your neighbors to
really hate you, you need to do some preparation of the planting area
first. A concrete or tile barrier 2' deep completely surrounding the
planting area will contain the roots- that is, the barrier needs to go
into the ground 2'. Once that stuff gets growing, there is no way you
can keep up with the quantity of bamboo shoots unless you plan on
opening a very busy Chinese restaurant! Of course, the long stems can
come in handy for various projects around the house and garden. Happy
digging........
