When I first started seeing my boyfriend he would often buy me flowers and occasionally plants; he still does this now! I have never been very good with plants; and always though it is best for me to have hardy plants/plants that do not need much looking after. Lots of plants I have had and tried to look after have died so I am always hesitant when it comes to buying them.
We often go to Homebase and they have some really lovely plants in there; I spotted this Lucky Bamboo and I had never actually seen this before but I liked the look of it; Homebase have various Lucky Bamboo plants available, some of which really are quite nice. I have 3 Lucky Bamboo sticks.
At first, I didn't have any problems and was informed that all I needed to do was keep the plant moist in a few inches of water. This, I did. However, I really should have done a little research too. Had I been bothered to look it up, I would have found that it is not advisable to place Lucky Bamboo in direct sunlight. Placing it in direct sunlight scorches the leaves!!! I noticed some of the leaves were turning a bit yellow/beigy coloured. Like a fool, I didn't particularly think of the reasons why!! However, I now know why; I put my Lucky Bamboo in direct sunlight on several occasions.
I will now not be putting it in direct sunlight; however, the damage has really been done re some of the leaves; I like my Lucky Bamboo and part of it looks nice and it also grows quite quickly in regard to the leaves, but the discoloration of some of the leaves doesn't look nice; they also look as if they are wilting a bit. I am seriously considering cutting these leaves off! Some good news is that Lucky Bamboo is quite cheap; so If I completely ruin my plant; I will go and get another one. Lucky Bamboo is quite pretty too in my view and I have put a little decoration in with the Bamboo too, to make it look a bit nicer.
So long as you follow the advice for caring for your Lucky Bamboo (unlike me!!), you should not have any problems with it.
This is a really nice Bamboo plant that will look nice in many areas of the home and/or office. For further information see http://www.chiff.com/a/lucky-bamboo.htm
Even though I have not been Lucky regarding my plant (due to my own fault!); I really like it, and am giving it 5 Dooyoo stars.
