Like all Dracaena's, the Dracaena sanderiana to which the Lucky Bamboo belongs can only be used as a houseplant. The trunks are put in water. Possibly some gravel, marbles or other decorative material can be added at the bottom of the pot or vase, for weighting or to keep the logs in place. This water must be refreshed every two weeks, or be supplemented weekly.
Feeding or fertilizing is not necessary and has a counterproductive effect because it affects the salinity of the water. The trunks go on water for several weeks or months, sometimes even years. The Lucky bamboo can also be potted, but that is not necessary. If it is potted, this must be done in a potting soil mixture that can contain a lot of water. If they are in the ground can be very carefully fertilized. First dissolve the plant food in water and pour it on the ground. The trunks prefer a light place in the room, without direct sunlight.
The temperature must be between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius, even a bit warmer. Possible spraying with water is allowed, but is not necessary. Dusting or cleaning: put the plant in a mild summer rain shower, and then quickly get it back. The shape of the trunks can be influenced by making use of gravity and the fact that they grow towards direct light sources. If the Lucky Bamboo is too high, it can be cut off. The trunk then no longer grows. He can, however, respond to pruning by developing leaf shoots on the trunk just below the cut.
