4. ‘Lucky’ Bamboo
Lucky Bamboo is a symbol of – you guessed it – luck! It’s also a symbol of wealth and is the perfect small house plant for a new home (and new beginnings).
Despite what you may hear, lucky bamboo isn’t actually bamboo. It’s part of a different genus of plants, and you can make it twirl into all sorts of shapes whether you want a heart, a swirl or anything else.
To best care for this beauty, place it in indirect sunlight, fill its container with water to cover the roots, put it in a warm location and repot it when it outgrows the container (you don’t want an exploding pot). You’ll want to make sure your lucky bamboo soil stays slightly damp.
You can grow the whole plant in water, but you’ll want it in soil for the optimal results.
