Go On Mystery Island Tour


One of the islands you can visit on Mystery Island Tours is filled to the brim with bamboo. However, you have to be lucky to get to visit there since all Mystery Island Tours are totally random.

Bamboo Shoots Are Buried Next To Bamboo

Bamboo Shoots

⬆Star shaped cracks in the ground mark the spot where you need to dig!

In order to get Bamboo Shoots, look for a star icon on the ground next to some bamboo. You can get Bamboo Shoots by digging on top of that star icon.

Get Bamboo Shoots From Daisy Mae


If you spend lot of money purchase Turnips from Daisy Mae, you can get Bamboo Shoots via mail. Daisy Mae comes to your island every Sunday.

Plant Bamboo On Your Island

growing bamboo

Once you've gotten Bamboo Shoots off-island, go back home and plant them in the ground! Keep doing this until you can create your own steady supply of Bamboo Shoots! Note that you cannot grow Bamboo by burying Bamboo pieces or Young Spring bamboo. You need to plant Bamboo shoots if you want to grow bamboo.

Bamboo Grows On Its Own

Bamboo Grows

Bamboo in New Horizons tends to grow fast. Really fast. Although this is great for getting a lot of Bamboo Shoots, it can quickly overwhelm your island and turn it into a bamboo forest, so make sure to tend to the trees and remove sprouts if there are too many.

How To Get Young Spring Bamboo

Seasonal Item Dropped From Bamboo

Seasonal Item Dropped From Bamboo

Young spring bamboo will drop by chopping bamboo trees only during Spring! These are time-limited, seasonal items so make sure to farm them before Spring ends!

I haven't gotten any shoots from the transplanted bamboo trees, and when i googled it some people says that bamboo only gives one harvest per tree now... can anyone confirm?

For Bamboo seasonal recipes you are missing Pan Flute, Steamer Basket Set, Bamboo Wand, Basket Pack, and the Bamboo Grove Wall, and Bamboo Doll. For other Bamboo you are missing Bamboo Candle Holder, Bamboo Stop Block, Deer Scare, Bamboo Shelf, Bamboo Flooring, Bamboo Lattice Fence, and Hearth

I don't think bamboo works the same way it used to in New Leaf. I planted my own grove and a couple days past (no, I did not time travel) and no shoots spawned in my grove. Does anyone know if it needs to rain or what are the conditions for shoots to spawn/grow?

Yes, replanting full bamboo trees works. My plants produce no shoots either EXCEPT the ones that I grow from bamboo shoots. It seems that if you plant a bamboo shoot, when the tree is fully grown on that day there will be a bamboo shoot buried next to it.
