#5 The Lucky Bamboo
Dracaena sanderiana, also called Ribbon Dracaena, Lucky Bamboo, Belgian Evergreen or sometimes Ribbon Plant, is a kind of Dracaena. It comes from Cameroon in tropical west Africa. It is one of a group of small,shrubby plants with slender stems and flexible strap-shaped leaves.
They grow as on the ground in rainforests as an upright shrub that can be up to 1.5 m tall. Its leaves are 15-25 cm long and 1.5-4 cm broad at the base. It is sold in the developed world as "Lucky Bamboo" often cited as being good for Fengshui.
New plants come from short cuttings which are often kept in water.
Dracaena sanderiana and related plants are popular houseplants. The plant can survive in many indoor conditions, but indirect lighting is best. Direct sunlight can cause the leaves to turn yellow and burn.
It does best in bright, indirect lighting and temperatures between 15 °C and 25 °C.
Salty or softened water can also cause brown leaf edges.
Twisted shapes are made by rotating the plant so that it bends towards the light. This is hard to do for many people, but patient people can make the plant take on new shapes.
Symbolizes wood, water and fire - the combination of these three elements creates a positive flow of energy known as Chi.
Suitable to be placed in the bedroom, due to its amazing absorption of stale air, especially if you seldom open the windows and let fresh air in.
