We have been getting queries regarding how to care Lucky Plant by our customers. So we thought of writing an article to help them. Lucky Bamboo Plant is said to give luck to one who receives it. Bamboo is the symbol of luck and success because of its rapid growth, strength and fortitude.  These tough stalks can survive in vases of pure water or in soil, and in a wide variety of light conditions. Even a poorly kept lucky bamboo plant will live for a long time. So it is of idiot-proof: and easy plant to take care of with low maintenance. A person who has no inclination in plant and know nothing about it or doesn’t have time to take care of. If you plan to use any kind of plant as a feng shui cure, it’s important that it be strong and healthy. And, in spite of its well-earned reputation for being virtually care free, it is not indestructible.

Light: Lucky bamboo prefer bright, filtered sunlight, such as found under a rainforest canopy. So avoid direct sunlight as it will scorch the leaves. They are more tolerant of too little light than too much. If the plant begins to stretch, however, or the green fades, provide more light.

Watering: Lucky bamboo can grow indefinitely in a simple glass or ceramic vase filled with pebbles and at least an inch of water. However, it should be kept in mind that these lucky bamboo plants are very sensitive to chlorine and other chemicals commonly found in our tap drinking water in our home. So it recommended to use water your lucky bamboo only with bottled or distilled water. Or if you use  tap water then make sure that it has been left out for 24 hours to allow the chlorine to evaporate. Healthy lucky bamboo roots are red, so don’t be alarmed in a glass vase if you can see red roots. Finally, good hygiene recommends that you change the water weekly to keep your plant healthy.

Temperature: Lucky bamboo likes warmer temperatures of between 65ºF and 90ºF. So it is prohibited to place the plants in front of air conditioning or heating vents as it will kill the plant.

Potting Media: In addition to water, lucky bamboo can be grown in a well-drained, rich potting soil. Due to its natural habitat in wet forest, the soil should be kept moist at all time, not soaking wet.

Fertilizer:  Neither water nor soil contains the vitamins, mineral, and hormones found in its natural habitats. Plants grown in water will only need to be fed every other month or so, using a very weak liquid fertilizer. A single drop of liquid fertilizer is plenty for most lucky bamboo arrangements. Alternatively, specialty lucky bamboo fertilizers are available in the market.Leaves that are yellow usually indicate too much sun or too much fertilizer. Cut out the fertilizer and move the plant to a shadier location.
