Lucky Bamboo

Lucky Bamboo Plant Features

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- or medium-light spot. You can find lucky bamboo available in an almost endless variety of arrangements, including heart shapes, twists, curls, and more. There's even lore about how many stems are in the arrangements!

This indoor plant grows well on desks and tabletops, making it a fun addition to your office, school, or home. Because lucky bamboo typically grows in water, you can personalize yours by putting it in watertight container you wish; secure the stems in place with marbles, stones, or other materials.

Lucky Bamboo Growing Instructions

Grow lucky bamboo in low or medium light for best results. It can take a high-light spot, but lucky bamboo doesn't like direct sun so it's best to protect it with a sheer curtain to diffuse the light.

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. Some people like to use rain water to reduce the chemical content in the water, but for the most part, this plant grows just fine in regular tap water.

If you wish to fertilize your lucky bamboo, use a fertilizer for aquatic plants and follow the directions on the fertilizer package. 
  
If your lucky bamboo outgrows its container, you can easily transfer it to a larger container. Pack in pebbles, stones, or other materials to help keep the stems upright. 

Note: Lucky bamboo is not intended for human or animal consumption.
