Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana) is native to central Africa. Lucky bamboo plants are said to bring good luck and fortune to those that own them! It is also said to be a nearly indestructible plant, so it is a great plant for the novice or otherwise neglectful plant owner, (wink-wink...you know who you are. ;P) But, there are certain conditions your lucky bamboo prefers, such as rich, well-drained soil (moist, but not soaking); temperatures between 65F and 85F; And bright filtered sunlight , such as what is found under a rainforest canopy, which is why it does great in dart frog vivariums! Your lucky bamboo wants to grow as tall as possible, but any shoots can be trimmed off to create new, smaller plants, as long as you catch them when they first start. Pruning should also help keep the height of the main stalk more under control, if done regularly.
The plants we sell here are starter plants, which means they are small enough to fit in a 7 inch tall terrarium, but if they are well taken care of, they will grow much larger than that and will make excellent additions to your larger living vivariums as well!
WE SHIP ALL OUR PLANTS BARE ROOT, but if you are not ready to plant them right away, they can be kept in a window, or under an artificial light source in a small vase with water for several weeks without issue, just don't let them dry up, the roots must always stay submerged under water!
