    I have a friend who just got some 'Lucky Bamoo' and she was asking about cultivation and care. Since PFT used to carry it I figure someone here has grown in. Could you offer advice?

    Thanks

    I have a lot of luck bamboo, though I've been told there is nothing lucky about it. It is just plain old bamboo. Anyway... I keep it in a glass jar w/ quarter size rocks, to keep the bamboo in place. Fill the jar up w/ water, and your set. It is the easiest plant to care for. It does not like a lot of sun, or too much shade. Indirect light is the best way to go. Good luck, I hope your friend enjoys, and hope they find some luck in the bamboo!

    It is actually Dracaena instead of a real bamboo. Here are a few webs sites for her to check out.

    There's a huge bamboo plant a few hundred feet from my house... and I also have a "dwarf" bamboo in a large pot. I personally don't like the stuff since it grows so d@mn fast. There are places online that sell lots of different kinds of bamboo too. Just do a search on google.

    We get MASSIVE bamboo here, it's like 20cm (8 inches?) in diameter.
    I used to have an aquarium stand built out of the stuff and making bamboo furniture is quite a big industry here.

    There is tons of the stuff growing around the place but my attitude is similar to Joel's, it's a weed.

    Cheers, Troy.
