The easiest way to get a lot of bamboo shoots is to go to one of the mystery islands where a bamboo forest is growing. Sometimes bamboo shoots are found in the ground near bamboo, so if you're lucky, you can snag quite a few of these.

Plant Bamboo Shoots and grow Bamboo

Like fruit, burying bamboo shoots in the ground will yield a bamboo tree in four days. You'll need bamboo pieces for DIY, so keeping a few of these trees around is a good idea. However, once you have picked up the bamboo shoots, you cannot get them again, so the number of shoots you get through this method is limited.

Bamboo Shoots can only be picked up once

Once you've collected the bamboo shoots from around a bamboo, they don't come back. Growing bamboo is mostly good for getting bamboo pieces.

How to Use Bamboo Shoots

Eat them to increase your stamina

Just like fruit, eating bamboo shoots will increase your stamina. Stamina will allow you to do things like uproot tree stumps or break rocks.

Use them for DIY crafting
