How to get bamboo and 5 best seeds for Minecraft beginners

How to get Bamboo in Minecraft?

Worry not as bamboo can easily be acquired in a few days, and will generate some jungle biome variation. 

When a player arrives in the game, you can find it through fishing, naturally sprouting, and a mod drop as well.

Breaking the bamboo is a simple task, but you should try using the sword or the ax. These two tools are the fastest when it comes to breaking bamboo allowing the player to gather more resources before darkness falls in. 



Where to Find Bamboo in Minecraft?

There are five places where you can find bamboo easily. 




Minecraft Jungle

Unless farmed, you can easily find bamboo in the jungles as it grows exclusively there. They are available in single shoots and grow far away from one another. However, in some variations, they grow in clusters also. 



Mob Drops

Minecraft Mob Drops

If you kill a panda, bamboo will drop for you. If you're playing the Java edition, you'll get 1, and if Bedrock version, then 2.




Minecraft Fishing

If you (Minecraft player) fish in the jungle biome, you stand a good possibility of reeling in bamboo. Technically these bamboos are considered "junk item," bit they are handy as ever. 



What is Bamboo used for in Minecraft?

Bamboo has a slew of actions in Minecraft which include smelting, crafting, farming, and breeding pandas. 




Minecraft Crafting

When you need to scaffold or craft both sticks, bamboo is quite useful. It's easy to make sticks, much like scaffolding. 

Scaffolding is a technique used to multiply ascend levels without having to use any blocks for building. Overall, on a larger scale of projects in survival mode, this will prove useful to you. 




Minecraft Farming

Farming, as the work suggests, provides the player with a plentiful bamboo supply, that's if you can grow it up as high as 16 blocks. If the player does manage, the player will have more than enough for scaffolding to the heart's desire. The player can use the bamboo for smelting and breeding pandas. 




Minecraft Smelting/Cooking

Smelting is one of the most important tasks in Minecraft. It helps in turning many ores into bars of their own respective one. You can use to make weapons, tools, armor, and other items like steel and flint is made from flint and bar of iron. If you don't use smelting, you won't last long in Minecraft. 

The player can increase their fullness time by using a furnace for cooking food. As a player you should remember, be it adventures or living a nomad life on the game, you need to stay full. 

Bamboo is the ideal item to serve for smelting. Now, we know it grows in bunches and quickly -- especially when it comes to a bone meal -- it's an ideal burning item. 



Breeding Pandas

Minecraft Breeding Pandas

We all know pandas love bamboo, reason why bamboo is also ideal for breeding pandas in Minecraft. You can do so by feeding bamboo to two adult within close proximity of one another. For this you'll need 8+ blocks of bamboo within a 5 blocks radius. This will lead their way to mating and to produce offspring as well.

Now that you know how, what, and where bamboo is in Minecraft, let's find out about the 5 best Minecraft seeds you need to know as a beginner.
