Lucky Bamboo- 2 Layer Plant
The 2-layer lucky bamboo plant belongs to the species Dracaena sanderiana. It is not actually a bamboo plant. It is also known as Chinese water bamboo, goddess of mercy plant, curly bamboo, and ribbon plant. Most of the 2-layer lucky bamboo plants are grown in water, but some are potted up in the soil, as well.
Caring for Your Lucky Bamboo
Here are the growing conditions your Lucky Bamboo needs to be healthy:
Light: Lucky bamboo prefers bright, filtered sunlight, such as found under a rainforest canopy. 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 vase filled with pebbles (for support) and at least an inch of water. However, they are very sensitive to chlorine and other chemicals commonly found in tap water. Water your lucky bamboo only with bottled or distilled water, or tap water that 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.
- Temperature: Lucky bamboo likes warmer temperatures of between 65 F and 90 F. Do not place the plants in front of air conditioning or heating vents.
- Potting Media: In addition to water, lucky bamboo can be grown in a well-drained, rich potting soil. Keep the soil moist, but not soaking. Water as you would any Dracaena species.
- Fertilizer: 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.
