Said to bring good luck and fortune, especially if the plants are given as gifts.
Although Lucky Bamboo resembles stalks of bamboo, it's actually more closely related to a succulent and not related to bamboo at all.
Housed in a variety of different ceramic pot options, our 'D' sized Lucky Bamboo planters are multi-planted with green stems that are braided, twisted, curled or straight and feature beautiful bright green leaves.
Almost indestructible, the tough stalks can survive in vases of pure water or in containers of soil. If keeping in your Lucky Bamboo in a vase, be sure to change the water weekly - don't be alarmed if you can see red roots on your Lucky bamboo as this is perfectly normal. They're quite tough and should survive even the blackest of thumbs.
Prefers to be kept in indirect sunlight and will tolerate artificial light, so they're perfect in an office environment. It is tropical plant so must be kept indoors in Tasmania's climate - it will tolerate short periods at low temperatures but will not survive winters outdoors.
Perfect for low or artificial light situations
Great gift idea
Lucky Bamboo is sensitive to chlorine and other chemicals commonly found in tap water - it is recommended you water only with bottled or distilled water. Tap water that has been left out for 24 hours to allow the chlorine to evaporate is also suitable.
Sanderiana needs water to grow, when in potting mix the soil should be watered when almost dry, plants in potting media should not be sitting in water as this can cause the media to go stale and hurt the plant. The moisture level in the ceramic pot can be tested by feeling the coolness of the pot - if the pot is much cooler than the air temperature the soil is damp or wet. Sanderiana can dry out for a few days without any damage except in very hot weather.
Growth is slow, about 15 to 30cm per year. Trim offshoots back to 2.5cm-5cm from the main stem - new shoots will soon emerge creating a bushier top.
We recommend you rotate your houseplants regularly to provide adequate light to all sides of the plant and prevent it from reaching toward the light on one side.
