Lucky Bamboo as the harbingers of wealth and positivity in many cultures. It is believed that keeping bamboo plants at home and office, attracts wealth and good luck. A lucky bamboo plant is actually not a bamboo plant but is a variety of tropical water lily called Dracaena sanderiana. It looks like a miniature bamboo tree and hence called Lucky Bamboo.
The plant features multiple vertically stacked stems tied with red ribbon and placed in glass vases filled with stones and water, some having longer twirled stems with short leaves are also popular. It is a common Feng Shui cure for removing negativity and believed to bring good luck and prosperity in homes where it is placed.
Vastu Shastra, the ancient practice of better living, believes that certain objects bring luck while others promise a long and healthy life. The Lucky bamboo plant is considered auspicious in such regard and comes with a special significance in Vastu. Thanks to its recommendation by Vastu and Feng Shui experts, this plant has become very popular and can be easily purchased through shops and nurseries.
Feng Hui is a branch of Chinese astrology that also works in a similar way to Vastu by organising living spaces in such a way as to harness energy for harmony between people and their living environment. According to Feng Shui, the plant parts represent the elements of Earth, Wood, Water, Metal, and Fire. When placed in the East direction, the lucky bamboo plant attracts good health for the full family.
