Bambuzinho Inhotim
The Raddia genus only happens in forests and has nine species widely spread in Brazil.

Brazil presents the largest diversity of bamboos in the neotropical realm, occurring mainly in the Amazon and the Atlantic Forest, since these species prefer richer soils in terms of the presence of organic matter and constant humidity.

The bambuzinho or tiny bamboo is an herbaceous bamboo, found primarily in the coastal forests ranging from Ceará to Rio de Janeiro, standing out for its small size (from 30 to 60 centimeters long).
