The giant bamboo of Myanmar is believed to be the fastest growing plant. It can grow up to 18 inches in one day.

The record for the slowest growing plant is held by the dioon plant. Dioon spinulosum grows in Mexico and has an average growth rate of .020 inches per year.

Both are popular houseplants.
