Lucky Bamboo Plants

The art of Feng Shui, originating in China, includes an important aspect of placing charms around specif areas of your environment, be it home or work, in order to bring luck. The charms are believed to bring harmony with natural elements into your life. When you are in harmony with your surroundings you will be free of obstacles, and can utilize your talents to their maximum effect.

Those who follow Feng Shui often use lucky bamboo plants as a lucky charm. Like a bonsai tree, these plants are miniature versions of the bamboo plants that grow in Asia and Africa. These miniature bamboo plants are hydroponic plants, meaning their roots are submerged in water rather than sand.

Lucky bamboo plants are a unique Feng Shui charm as they represent all the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water in it. The wood is represented by the plant. The pot holding the plant represents the element earth. The water that sustains the plant represents the water element. The bamboo plant is placed with a metal coin and a red ribbon is tied around the pot to bring in the remaining metal and fire elements.

By simply adding lucky bamboo throughout your home you can enjoy a variety of benefits such as improved health, a better financial outlook, and more. These benefits will vary in quantity and degree depending on the number of stalks on your bamboo tree. For example: to add happiness to your home simply select a lucky bamboo having three stalks. It's just that easy!

On the other hand, if you want to shower good health for your family, you need to have a five-stalked bamboo plant. However, a word of caution: growing a lucky bamboo plant with four stalks may bring forth bad luck. In Chinese, the number four sounds like death! Anyway, your florist would help you choose the lucky bamboo plant best for you.

The lucky bamboo plant makes a great gift and brings luck to the recipient and to the giver. A local bonsai tree shop can deliver a lucky bamboo plant as a gift for a birthday, anniversary, or just for fun. They do not require much care or water and can live for up to five years. The lucky bamboo plant is an excellent gift giving option for the generous and luck-wanting gift giver.
