Are you a beginning houseplant gardener? Here’s a great one to get started with. It’s easy as pie to keep looking good and sure to become a topic of conversation as you’re busy showing it off.
Lucky Bamboo does great in bright light. It’ll tolerate lower light levels indoors just fine but it won’t grow much.
If your Lucky Bamboo arrangement is growing in a low dish or bowl, then make sure it has at least 1? of space all the way around so the roots can spread out a bit.
Lucky Bamboo is native to tropical rainforests. If it’s been in your home for a while and you’re seeing brown leaf tips, one of the causes is the dry air that our homes often have.
It grows better for the long haul in soil but is most commonly sold in water because it’s more of a novelty.
Do not use tap water if your water is hard. Your Lucky Bamboo will do much better with distilled, purified, or treated water.
