Dracaena 'Lucky Bamboo'
In Asian cultures, lucky bamboo has long been considered to bring good fortune to its owners. In fact, the only thing that seems to bring good fortune to unlucky bamboo owners is having their plant stolen by friends and family who want in on some of that luck! Lucky bamboo's striking green color and unique shapes make it attractive enough as an ornamental plant, but there's much more to lucky bamboo than meets the eye!
How do they grow?
Lucky bamboo is a type of plant called a Dracaena. It can be found in water or soil and can grow anywhere from three to 15 feet tall! It’s one of several types of plants that go by names other than their official scientific name, such as peace lily and reed grass. They are all part of a family known as Araceae, which also includes philodendrons and caladiums. This family has been around for millions of years
Why are they called lucky?
When compared to other houseplants, lucky bamboo is among some of easiest to grow and maintain. Because they’re low-maintenance houseplants, it’s often recommended as a gift for anyone who doesn’t have a green thumb. It’s easy to see why these plants are considered lucky: despite minimal upkeep, they tend to live for decades and can even outlive their owners.
How to grow them and take care of them
While lucky bamboo plants are fairly low-maintenance, there are a few simple things you can do to ensure they stay healthy and thrive. And when your lucky bamboo starts to get a little lonely, it's easy to propagate them and share them with friends. With just a little bit of light and care, you can bring luck into your life by keeping these magical stalks on hand!
