Lucky Bamboo activates stagnant energy and enhances the flow of positive energy, or auspicious chi, throughout your home or workplace. It is important to take proper care of your Lucky Bamboo to ensure its health and vitality. A strong symbol of good luck, Lucky Bamboo signifies good fortune, health and prosperity.
Light Requirement for Lucky Bamboo: bright indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. It is important that the lucky bamboo receive adequate light; lack of light will cause weak growth, stretching and poor color. Low light conditions will, also, cause stunted growth and inhibit new leaf growth. The light requirements for lucky bamboo are the same whether grown in water or in soil.
In water: Water level should be at least a couple of inches. Make sure the roots are covered with water; add water to keep the water level constant. Every couple of weeks change the water completely. Refill the container with clean water. Lucky bamboo is sensitive to the salts and chemicals in tap water; use distilled water or rainwater if possible. If you must use tap water let it set in an open container over night; this will let the chlorine evaporate. However, there is no way to remove the fluoride from the tap water. Fluoride can cause leaf tips to turn brown. Low humidity can cause leaf tips to turn brown as well. Mist the leaves of the lucky bamboo every couple of days if lack of humidity is a problem.
Our daughter attended FUNky Kids Yoga with Yogi Joni Van Horn and she received 2 gifts to pay forward to her teachers on the first day of school. On the first day of school, she could hardly wait to see her teachers. Her teachers LOVED the Intentional Act of Kindness. Thank you Starfish Project Foundation for Shining Your Light!!
