Lucky bamboo plants are said to bring good luck and fortune to those that own them, but the meaning can also be derived by the number of stalks. For example, 3 stalks are thought to bring health and happiness, while 8 stalks represent development and prosperity.
They have a well-earned reputation as nearly indestructible — even a poorly kept lucky bamboo plant will live for a long time before it finally succumbs. They prefer bright indirect sunlight and warmer temperatures, and they can be grown in either soil or water. When potted, the soil should always remain moist; when in water, use distilled/rain water and replenish every week.
