Are you looking for the perfect plant for your bathroom? Could you use some good fortune and luck? The braided lucky bamboo plant may solve all of your problems.
These easy-to-grow houseplants not only look super cool, but they also require minimal maintenance. Plus, they cost very little money (especially when you consider the fact that they could even bring you wealth!).
You can get this 8-stalk living arrangement, complete with contemporary black vase and crystal soil for less than $20. The plant measures approximately 15″ tall.
These water-loving plants work well in bathrooms because they thrive in humid environments. In addition, they prefer indirect light and can even grow in rooms with artificial light only.
On top of that, they take up hardly any space. (The pot only measures approximately 3.5″ x 3.5″). Set the planter on a small wall shelf, window sill or even next to the mirror or your bathroom counter. They stay neatly out of the way without becoming a nuisance.
Note: 8 stalks of bamboo together (like in the arrangement above)
attracts wealth and abundance. 3 stalks attract happiness, and 5 stalks attract health.
Caring for Your Braided Lucky Bamboo Plant:
Your lucky bamboo plant can grow either in soil or in water (hydroponically). In other words, no soil is required.
That said, growing your lucky bamboo in water requires that you change the water once a week. Therefore, growing in water only entails little more effort.
Make sure to use filtered water because the chemicals in regular tap water can hurt the plant and yellow the leaves. In addition, you’ll want to add fertilizer 3-4 times a year. I use an all-purpose plant food because then I can use it with of my indoor and plants (and save money!).
How to Trim (and Train) the Leaf Sprouts on Your Lucky Bamboo
As your plant grows new leaves, older leaves will tend to turn brown and dry up. This is normal, and you can simply cut them off. In the video below, Yolanda explains exactly what to do to promote optimal growth of your plant while keeping it lush and green.
Wait… It’s Not Bamboo?
In fact, braided lucky bamboo plants are not actually part of the bamboo family at all, but rather “Dracaena Sanderiana“. In any case, they are known as the Lucky Bamboo in traditional Feng Shui.
Plants are imported from Taiwan and then created into artistic arrangements by 9GreenBox in the USA. Get a Braided Bamboo Plant here.
