Lucky Bamboo first hit the garden centers in the late 1990s.
Care for indoor bamboo plant couldn't be easier: it will grow in a vase of water with pebbles to keep it upright.
This striking bamboo plant has a slender, upright stem and graceful, arching green leaves that taper to a point.
Its roots are red – so don't worry if you see red roots in the vase.
This is normal for a healthy plant.
It's not really a bamboo.
This member of the Dracaena family has been around a long time, but has become a favorite of feng shui enthusiasts because it is believed to enhance chi energy and bring good luck.
You won't need luck to grow it, though.
Dracaenas find homes in many offices and dorms because they can be ignored for days (or weeks!) without suffering from neglect.
