Inexpensive Lucky Bamboo Gifts
Inexpensive Lucky Bamboo
Lucky Bamboo is the perfect gift for the home or office because it requires very little care. This inexpensive greenery comes in a variety of twisted shapes and can be dressed up with a charming vase.
Your recipient will watch their new plant thrive in about an inch of water and a little sunlight. It does best in a lot of indirect sunlight. Be sure to keep the water fresh by changing it on a weekly basis. You may want to use bottled or filtered water because plain tap water can be to harsh for this delicate plant.
Dracaena sanderiana is native to tropical west Africa and parts of Southeast Asia. Most people simply know it as lucky bamboo even though it's more closely related to lilies.
Dracaena sanderiana is highly toxic to pets. Please keep it out of their reach.

How to Care for Dracaena Sanderiana
Too much sunlight or fluoride in the water may cause yellow or brown leaves. To avoid death, try using only filtered or bottled water and keeping it out of direct sunlight.

Although planting in soil offers the best outcomes, lucky bamboo will survive in just water (and rocks or other material for appeal).
According to Feng Shui Masters, wherever bamboo is placed, good fortune is sure to follow. It's a traditional symbol of health, happiness and wealth in Asian cultures.
Will it bring Good Fortune?
This greenery is thought to be a symbol of luck and success because it grows fast, is strong willed and will live for a very long time.
But..It is truly lucky?
I can't say for sure. I know I feel fortunate enough to own several of these perfect potted greens. Everyone has their own opinion of what having good fortune means. I tend to believe we all make our own luck and happiness... so, I'll leave it up to you to decide.
One thing is for sure, this low maintenance beauty will bring a smile to your face for many years to come.
