But, bamboo plants like other plants will take time to grow to reach full height and maturity. This video shows first-year growth. 

Under the right conditions, bamboo plants will provide that beautiful greenery within 3 years. The first growth will continue to mature for up to 5 years and, interestingly, remain evergreen for up to 20 years.

The new shoots will be taller than the previous growth until the bamboo grove reaches its maximum height. 

Thereafter, the bamboo grove will remain evergreen for as long as it can.

As the bamboo matures, you will need to prune the old bamboo culms and rhizomes to promote new growth. Or transplant the ones that outgrow the pots.
