  • Botanical Name: Dracaena sanderiana
  • Common Name(s): Dragon Tree, 'Lucky Bamboo'
  • Description: Lucky Bamboo symbolizes good fortune, and feng shui practitioners use it to attract positive energy. Erect, bright green, cane-like stem with terminal, corkscrew twist bearing shoots of small, lance-shaped, parallel-veined, green leaves.  Most people who grow lucky bamboo indoors have the plant in water. Use a layer of pebbles to stabilize the stems of the plant and hold it in place. A clear container allows you to see the water level and root growth.

CARE TIPS

  • Light: Since lucky bamboo grows in the shade of taller trees in nature, keep it out of direct sunlight. Bright, indirect light is best. If it starts to fade to a pale green it needs more light.
  • Water: Add enough water to keep the roots covered. (If it hasn’t grown roots yet, the plant will need at least 3 inches of water.) Distilled or filtered water is best, due to fluoride and chlorine in tap water. These chemicals can cause the green tips of the leaves to burn and turn brown.
  • Temperature: Lucky bamboo likes warm temperatures, in the 65° to 90°F range
Caution
—this plant is toxic to cats!

Frequently Asked Questions

Plant Care Tips

How do you package the plants?

Our plants are shipped in custom sustainable boxes to ensure a healthy delivered plant. During colder months (November-April), we ship all plants with a heat pack for extra protection. 

Where are the plants grown and shipped from? 

Our plants are grown and ship from our greenhouses in California and Florida. Due to this, it is possible that your items may arrive in multiple shipments. 

Why are my plant leaves dropping within the first few days of receiving them? 

Suggestion: This is normal and will happen often because the plants have been through shipping and are being placed in a new environment. They're in shock. Give them a week or 2 to sit back and relax in their new home. 

Why are the plant leaves turning yellow? 

Suggestion: Most often this is a sign of overwatering. Our plants are typically watered before shipping therefore, they wont need to be watered when you receive them. It's always a good idea to touch the top 1-2 inches of soil to see if its damp. If so, do not water the plant right away. 

Should I repot my plants when I get them? 

Suggestion: It might be best to wait a week or so until your plants are adjusted to their new environment. They're already a little stressed from being flewed out, give then some time to relax and settle in.
