Product Details


Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana):

Description:

Lucky Bamboo is not actually bamboo but a type of Dracaena plant. It is characterized by its slender, upright stalks and lush, green foliage. The stalks are often twisted or braided, adding an ornamental touch.

Care instructions:

Lucky Bamboo is a relatively low-maintenance plant. It can thrive in both water and well-draining soil, depending on your preference. Here are care instructions for both options:

Water-grown Lucky Bamboo:

  • Place the plant in a container filled with about 2 inches of distilled water or tap water that has been left to sit overnight (to allow any chlorine to dissipate).
  • Keep the water level consistent, ensuring that the base of the stalks is always submerged.
  • Change the water every two to four weeks to prevent stagnation and the growth of algae.
  • Avoid using fluoridated or mineral-rich water, as it can cause leaf burn.

Soil-grown Lucky Bamboo:

  • Plant the Lucky Bamboo in a well-draining potting mix, such as a mixture of peat moss and perlite or a cactus/succulent mix.
  • Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, allowing any excess water to drain away.
  • Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
  • Fertilize the plant sparingly with a diluted liquid houseplant fertilizer once every 2-3 months.

Light: Lucky Bamboo prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. However, it can tolerate lower light conditions, making it suitable for indoor environments.

Temperature: Lucky Bamboo thrives in temperatures between 65°F (18°C) and 90°F (32°C). Protect it from cold drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations.

Maintenance: Trim any yellowing or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's appearance. Occasionally wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their glossy look.

Lucky Bamboo is often associated with good luck and is a popular choice for indoor plant decor. It adds a touch of greenery and elegance to any space.
