The Difference Between Real and Lucky Bamboo

Bamboo is not only favored by the Panda, it is also favored by us as well because of its wide range of uses. Bamboo is considered a symbol of fertility in Chinese culture and a symbol of friendship in India. Although it can grow as tall as a skyscraper, it is not considered to be a tree. but a type of “True Grass” and also part of the Poacea family. Poacea is the most important of all plant families to human economies. Bamboo is also considered to be the fastest growing plant in the world. It can grow over 2 feet in a day due to a unique Rhizome-Dependent System. Rhizome is a characteristically horizontal stem of a plant that is usually found underground and the Bamboo plant is considered to be such. The plant can be found in cold mountains or hot tropical regions. It can grow in poor soils and requires little water. It is commonly used in textile, furniture, flooring, etc.

Bamboo is often confused with the Feng Shui “Lucky Bamboo Plant” but they are not the same. The Lucky Bamboo plant is a Dracaena Sanderiana and a tropical plant often cultivated for indoor use. It is native to the rain forests of Cameroon, Africa and Southeast Asia. It is also considered to be one of the most popular Feng Shui cures. According to Feng Shui, it can bring good luck and fortune. It is believed to be an ideal example of the thriving wood and water element, with the addition of a red ribbon sometimes tied around the stalks, which is believed to “fire” the positive flow of energy or chi in the room. It can also be used for decor because of its distinguish look. The curves and curls that the plant has is made by turning the plant toward the sun for certain amounts of time. The plant is easy to take care of and requires little water and sunlight.
