On the hand carved Chinese Bakelite set we see above, you'll find bamboo in a pot on tile #4 (see, it is not always 3!) on the top row of Flowers.
And above on these hand carved bone and bamboo tiles, it's back on tile #3. You will notice a longevity stone next to each pot, a common pairing .
The somewhat genteel pot with bamboo growing can even be seen on these Imperial tiles which were made in France and have a rubber-like backing and plastic tile face. It is felt that red image to the left is probably a stone.
And here, on the left, the hand-carved bone and bamboo tiles feature bamboo with a longevity stone yet again.
