The upright stems of Lucky Bamboo Dracaena resemble bamboo canes and feature lance-shaped green foliage that grows in shoots from the top. While the Lucky Bamboo Dracaena looks like bamboo, it is part of the Dracaena family. Also known as Dracaena sanderiana or Dragon Tree, this easy-care plant is not selective about its environment and does well with minimal effort. With time, the foliage will fill in and create a lush canopy of greenery. The Lucky Bamboo Dracaena produces clusters of tiny white flowers with proper care.
Best Locations For Growing Lucky Bamboo Dracaena
A tall, upright growth habit makes the Lucky Bamboo Dracaena a good plant for areas with limited space but plenty of sunlight. Rooms with increased moisture in the air, like kitchens and bathrooms, are good locations.
Lucky Bamboo Dracaena Sunlight Requirements
Lucky Bamboo Dracaena needs medium to bright sunlight. Plants in bright light will grow faster than plants in medium light, but make sure the light is indirect. Rotate the plant each week to ensure each side receives even sunlight.
Lucky Bamboo Dracaena Care
Lucky Bamboo Dracaena prefers to grow in average room temperatures. Chilly temperatures can be damaging. Keep this plant away from drafty windows and doors and cooling vents.
Watering Lucky Bamboo Dracaena
Water Lucky Bamboo Dracaena when the soil is dry. When watering, saturate the soil completely and allow water to drain through the pot. This houseplant likes high humidity. The foliage may dry out and turn brown, starting at the edges, if there is not enough moisture in the air. Use a pebble tray or humidifier to give this plant the dampness it craves.
Feeding Lucky Bamboo Dracaena
Lucky Bamboo Dracaena is not a heavy feeder, but some well-timed applications of plant food will help the plant grow and thrive. Apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two months.
