The lucky bamboo grown in its native country (West Africa) can grow up to 5ft tall (or much more), and as a house plant up to approximately 2 or 3 feet. There are various cultivars of this plant and some of the most interesting are the twisted stalk types which are trained by specialist growers.
Lucky Bamboo (common). -- Dracaena Braunii, or Dracaena Sanderiana (botanical/scientific).
Max Growth (approx):
Poisonous for pets:
Warm room temperature's and above are advised 65°F (18°C) - 90°F (32°C).
Avoid lower than 55°F/12°C in the winter.
In it's natural habitat the lucky bamboo grows under the cover of shade trees, so place
your plant in a bright spot without direct sunlight which can burn the leaves that will
mimic their natural living space.
In a vase or water type pot change the water once every 7 days with distilled or bottled
water. If your dracaena Braun vii is grown in soil (which is it's natural way of growing),
water once the soil becomes slightly dry to the touch.
A well-draining potting soil mix is advised.
Re-pot a plant living in the soil when it becomes pot bound or every 2 years. If your plant sits
in water with pebbles at the bottom for stability, re-pot to a bigger container once the
previous one becomes too small and when the pebbles and container need cleaning.
Cleaning the water container will prevent bacteria problems.
Normal room humidity is fine.
Choose and cut the biggest shoot (or shoots) available on a stalk and remove the lower
leaves from the shoot. Cut the shoot about 1 cm – 2 cm away from the stalk. Sit your
stem cutting in water for about 3 months until roots appear and then pot in soil.
Trim back shoots one or two of inches from the stalk which will encourage the plant
to grow into a nice bushy plant. If you have too many off shoots you can cut some
back near to the stalk. Do not cut stalks.
