GMG's Friday Find: Lucky Bamboo for St. Patty's Day!

Costa Farms
What's a cool, lucky plant to give on St. Patty's Day besides the shamrock?...the Lucky Bamboo

Interestingly, Lucky Bamboo is actually not a bamboo at all, but rather a Dracaena! It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and is the primary plant recommended for improving Feng Shui and for creating spaces where you feel safe and more energized to meet the demands of today's high-pressured world. They are very eye-catching and come with an ancient Chinese tradition-- the number of stalks represent distinct meanings and bring specific fortune.
