Lucky Bamboo Plant

Dracaena sanderiana

A Lucky Bamboo Plant is really made up of the cut stalks of a Dracaena Sanderiana plant and is native to West Africa and Eastern Asia. These Lucky Bamboo Plant stalks are usually between 4″- 24″in height. Followers of Feng Shui believe that Lucky Bamboo Plants bring prosperity and good fortune to a home or business. If a Lucky Bamboo Plant arrangement has three stalks it brings happiness, five stalks bring wealth, and six stalks bring health. Four stalks are never allowed in a Lucky Bamboo Plant since the word four in Chinese sounds too close to the Chinese word for death. If you buy the Lucky Bamboo Plant stalks loose and not planted, be sure to keep them in water until you have permanently placed them in a vase or decorative container. If you purchase multiple Lucky Bamboo Plant stems that are tied together, do not remove the ties, this stabilizes the plant. Lucky Bamboo Plants require very little care and grows practically anywhere as long as you keep the water clean and chemical free .
