The length of the section is around 20-45 cm and the center line is about 4-10 cm, the wall thickness of the reed is around 7-15 mm, yellow with green lines, the feathers are attached and have a layer of white wax when young. Reed midribs fall out quickly, triangular, 15-45x20 cm wide, longer and green but eventually turn yellow. The outer side is covered by black moles and hairy edges.

The reed midrib leaves are erect, wide triangular, have a size of 4-5x5-6 cm, narrow at the base and pop up at the ends, haired on both sides and along the bottom edge. The midrib ear is relatively large, oval-shaped and stretches out, 0.5-2 cm long with pale brown fur, a slightly jagged ligula with a height of 3 mm.

Big yellow bamboo have leaves on lancet-shaped twigs and about 6-30x1-4 cm. Small and rounded midrib ears, 0.5-1.5 mm high with 1-3 mm long bristle hair. Ligula is almost flat, about 0.5-1.5 mm high and locus.

Inflorescence in the form of panicles and usually on twigs or reeds that are not leafy or in small leaf reeds with small groups of spikelet in each bud and separated by a distance of 2-6 cm. Spikelet is a narrow ovoid, 12-19x4-5 mm in size, flattened on the sides, consisting of 5-10 perfect florets and one tip floret.



Bambu kuning in Southeast Asia grows a lot in villages, on the banks of rivers, on the edge of roads, abandoned areas, open spaces and in urban areas as ornamental plants. This species likes the hot and humid lowlands, grows to an altitude of 1,200 m above sea level, but tends to dwarf above 1,000 m above sea level.

Golden bamboo can also grow in very dry seasonal places even though it is often molested. This bamboo is used to fulfill a variety of needs including the mast, steering wheel, buttress, house poles, even though the rod is not so straight and cannot bear the beetle attack.

B. vulgaris has several subspecies including Green-stripe Common Bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris ssp. Vittata), Buddha Bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris ssp. Wamin), Bambusa vulgaris var. aureovariegata, Bambusa vulgaris var. constrichnoda and Bambusa vulgaris ssp. vulgaris.

This tree is also used to make traditional combs and koteka in Papua. Green-stripe common bamboo is well known in the furniture and reed industries for pulp which is good for making paper. The shoots are eaten as vegetables in Java and boiled water is also used to treat hepatitis.

Javan broadhead planarian (Bipalium javanum)

Cacing palu or Javan broadhead planarian ( Bipalium javanum ) is a species of animal in Geoplanidae, hermaphrodite, living on the ground, predators, often called only hammerhead or broadhead or shovel worms because of wide heads and simple copulatory organs. B. javanum has a slim stature, up to 20 cm long, up to 0.5 cm wide, head wide up to 1 cm or less, small neck, widening in the middle and the back end is rounded, all black and shiny.

Move swiftly, track meander, climb to get through all obstacles or make a new path if the obstacle is too high. Cacing palu track and prey on earthworms and mollusks. They use muscles and sticky secretions to attach themselves to prey to lock in. The head and ends of the body are wrapped around and continue to close the body to stop prey reactions. They produce tetrodotoxins which are very strong

Golden tortoise beetle (Charidotella sexpunctata)

Kepik emas or golden tortoise beetle ( Charidotella sexpunctata ) is a type of leaf beetle species in the Chrysomelidae family, up to 14mm long and bright golden in glass discs. These insects usually live on Ipomoea carnea trees that grow in environments close to water. C. sexpunctata takes refuge in a transparent disc consisting of three parts with four signs as fals legs, a pair of antennas and six legs. This beetle is able to change color if it feels threatened by flowing liquid between the cuticles and the glittering gold color turns into blood red or worn brown. Kepik emas usually lay eggs up to 20 items, white and attached to the branches or on the underside of the leaves. Yellowish or reddish brown larvae will appear from eggs that hatch within 5 to 10 days. Adults and larvae eat leaves which cause large holes.
