Lucky Bamboo Plant Care Guide

Lucky Bamboo Plant Overview

Lucky Bamboo is a fascinating houseplant that grows in water. It’s great for beginning gardeners or as a house decor. A hearty and resilient plant, lucky bamboo requires little care to maintain its rich green color and lovely visual appeal. Often referred to as the bamboo money tree, you want this feng shui plant to be in top health. Knowing the right lucky bamboo care techniques and rules ensures your plant will be beautiful, strong and healthy.

Lucky Bamboo – Feng Shui

For the proper feng shui impact, a lucky bamboo arrangement should combine and represent all five feng shui elements, considered to be the foundation of a harmonious universe: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal.

Wood: The lucky bamboo plant (as do all plants) expresses the feng shui wood element.

Earth: The rocks filling the lucky bamboo container or vase create the foundation of growth for the plant, thereby representing the earth element.

Water: The water the bamboo needs for its vibrant growth obviously represents the water element.

Fire: A lucky bamboo plant used as a feng shui cure should have a red ribbon tied to it—the color red is the expression of the fire element.

Metal: The glass pots that contain most lucky bamboo plants represent the metal element. If your lucky bamboo is planted in a ceramic pot, it should have either a metal coin (Chinese coins for good luck) or a metal figurine, such as the laughing buddha.

Things to care


● Choose a vase that’s at least 2 inches wider than the plant.
● Add fresh, clean water to your bamboo plant two or three times each week.
● It is important to keep several inches of water in the container, making sure to keep the roots of the plant wet.
● Replace the water every seven to 10 days to keep your lucky bamboo in top condition.
● Keep the plant inside your home and avoid any direct sunlight.
● Cut yellow leaves immediately.
● You may need to rotate your plant so it gets light evenly on all sides.

Do Not’s:

● Do not place your Lucky Bamboo in direct sun.
● Do not use tap water if your water is hard. Your Lucky Bamboo will do much better with distilled or purified water.
● Do not let your Lucky Bamboo dry out – keep the roots covered with water at all times.
● Do not keep the water levels too high – just covering the roots is fine.
● Do not place your Lucky Bamboo near a heating or cooling vent. Also, keep it away from any cold drafts.
● Do not let dust collect on the leaves because the pores need to breath. Periodically clean the leaves with a brush, damp rag &/or spray off with water.

NOTE: As it is a live plant, therefore its health might deteriorate because of shipping. Hence you are
advised to allow the plant to recover to its best of health within 1-2 weeks of the receipt. These are few
points which will help you to take care of your plant.
