Lucky bamboo is a wonderful gift plant that adds a bold note to indoor decor with its often intricately arranged stems. It's a slow-growing foliage houseplant that's easy to care for in a low-, medium-, or high-light spot.
You'll often see lucky bamboo sold without soil. The stems may be submerged in water and pebbles, gravel, marbles, or even colorful gels. Lucky bamboo is happiest when you keep the stems submerged in water. Bright, but indirect light is best, though lucky bamboo will tolerate low-light conditions (and grow slower in such places).
If your lucky bamboo outgrows its container, you can repot the plant in regular potting mix for houseplants. Keep it evenly moist, but not wet.
