Did you know that Lucky Bamboo isn’t a bamboo at all?! The canes, stalks or stems (whatever you prefer to call them) resemble the canes of a bamboo plant. It’s a dracaena, Dracaena sanderiana or braunii to be exact.

Lucky Bamboo is found in many different forms and arrangements and it can be grown in water or soil.

The number of stalks has different meanings as do the various forms like trellis, tree,  spiral, etc. This isn’t something I know a lot of about, but I do know that you should avoid an arrangement using 4 stems.

It’s bad luck in Chinese culture and who needs that? 3 stems is a favorite number because it represents happiness, long life and wealth. Yes, please!
