The Emperor's Jade Cricket Box has been stolen!

An investigation was conducted, and there are only two men in The Forbidden City who could have taken it; both work at the palace, both claimed innocence.

The Emperor turned to his Magician in this time of need, asking him to use his powers to find which is guilty. The Magician brought the Emperor and the servants to the outer walls of the palace.

"Cut a stalk of bamboo exactly forty inches tall, and plant them side by side here." he instructed them.

They servants obeyed, one man planted his stalk on the left, the other on the right.

"My Emperor, do you find the two stalks to be identical?"

The Emperor saw that the stalks were exactly the same length.

"In the morning, we shall return to here. The stalk planted by the innocent man will not change, but the stalk planted by the guilty man will grow an inch before sunrise."

The four returned at morning, and saw that the stalk on the right was exactly one inch taller than it's counterpart on the left.

What happened?

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
It was the palace panda, who ate an inch of the one on the left.

No, none of these things happened.

guys, instead of trying to guess what happened, try asking me questions like what Fedorekd asked

No, sorry I should've said in the OP, assume this scenario follows the rules of the real world

Did one of the men actually take it?
Are they working together?
Do either of the men have enemies?

What does this even mean? You already said one of them grew an inch

Is the man whose stalk grew actually guilty?
If not did the guilty guy mes with it?

1. I never said that
2. See the above answer
3. No, the guilty man did not tamper with the innocent man's stalk

Did the thief alter a stalk, or send somebody to alter it for them?
