Bamboo Sticks Can Bring Good Luck
Lucky bamboo sticks can be planted in earth or grown solely in water. It's best to always use filtered or rain water, as bamboo does not like chlorine of fluoride which is found in most tap water. It's a good idea to replace the water completely every few weeks or so, and this will keep the sticks healthy.
If your lucky bamboo plant is potted in soil then make sure the soil is kept moist without being too wet. However, never allow it to dry out completely.
Lucky bamboo and Feng Shui
Revered because of its vitality, Feng Shui bamboo has remarkable flexibility and strong growth. It's a truly amazing plant which is considered to have wise energy in that its flexibility and hollow stems allow for the spirit to flow freely.
A lucky Feng Shui plant in a container represents all five elements:
- Wood - represented by the bamboo itself.
- Earth - represented by the rocks and earth in which the plant grows.
- Water - is the element that sustains it.
- Fire - is represented by a red ribbon tied around the pot.
- Metal - because the glass pot in which the bamboo is contained belongs to the metal element.
It's believed we can live in harmony with the environment by combining these elements in our home.
