4. Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena Sanderiana)
Lucky bamboo, also known as friendship bamboo or ribbon plant, is said to bring good fortune and happiness to its owners. Lucky bamboo can be grown in water or soil. If using water, make sure the level is high enough to cover the roots once they emerge. You will need to change the water every couple of weeks and keep your container clean. Use distilled water if chemicals in tap water are a concern. A tall container will help support the lucky bamboo’s stalks. Lucky bamboo is a great plant to give as a gift. In fact, did you know that the amount of lucky bamboo stalks you purchase represents different things?
