The Meaning of Luck Bamboo

This little gem “Dracaena Sanderiana” is better known as The Lucky Bamboo. Bamboo's long life makes it a Chinese symbol of uprightness and an Indian symbol of friendship. In the practise of Feng Shui much of the luck that is associated with the bamboo comes from the numbers of stems in the arrangement. The more stems bunched together the greater the blessing of good fortune and luck for your home or office.  Aside from good luck, bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants

Easy to care for

Here in Ireland, the Lucky bamboo is so easy to grow and maintain. Place in a bright position Indoors and water every week. After one year when the plant has out grown the container, re-pot in a bigger base that can facilitate the new root growth and hole more water. You can also re pot into compost and don’t worry the luck bamboo will grow very happily in compost also.

The “deliciosa” part of its name comes from the pineapple-like fruit it bears in the wild. 

The Monstera has many names such as Ceriman; Custard plant; Indian ivy; Fruit salad plant and Mexican breadfruit but is perhaps best known under its nickname “Swiss Cheese Plant”
