Many people like lucky bamboo because it is very easy to grow and train, and it can brighten a home significantly. You may also hear lucky bamboo referred to as dracena or ribbon plant. In the wild, the plant is shrubby in appearance, with slender stalks which look sort of like bamboo canes and blade-shaped, ribbon like leaves. The plant is adapted for the indirect sunlight, relative warmth, and heavy moisture of the forest floor, and as a result, it likes to be kept moist and warm in the home, and it prefers indirect sunlight.
In addition to being easy to grow and care for, lucky bamboo is also easy to shape. Many people grow multiple canes and braid or weave them into patterns, and some people like to grow spiral lucky bamboo, which has a distinctive corkscrew shape. If the plant is allowed to grow as it pleases, it will often develop distinct kinks and bends due to changes in position or light level, as it seeks the lightest place in reach.
