It does make a good ornamental plant, but beware that it can be quite open clumping, so give it a good amount of space to grow. Best for acreage and rural properties.

The timber is straight and strong, but due to the high starch content (hence sweet tasting shoots), it is quite susceptible to attack by wood borers and powder beetles, unless the timber is properly treated before use.

Dendrocalamus latiflorus is extensively grown in commercial plantations for shoot production.
