Is Lucky Bamboo a Bamboo?
Many wouldn’t know that Lucky Bamboo isn’t a bamboo at all. They are not from a bamboo family but belong to a different species called as Dracaena.
The lucky bamboo has so many names – curly bamboo, Chinese water bamboo, friendship bamboo, Goddess of Mercy plant, Belgian evergreen and ribbon plant…
It is believed that keeping the lucky bamboo inside the house or a workplace brings happiness and prosperity. No wonder why this plant sells more. China and Taiwan seems to be the top most exporters of Lucky Bamboo.
