I recently received this little, lucky bamboo plant and just love how easy it is to care for. Although it is not really a bamboo, the plant does grow in water.
Lucky Bamboo is also a favorite with those interested in Feng Shui, because it represents the 5 elements that are supposed to bring harmony and zen to your home.
Rocks, sand, pebbles and clay are substitutes for earth. Shades of brown also represent earth.
Water is always kept in the Lucky Bamboo container. The color blue also represents water.
The Lucky Bamboo plant represents the wood, as does the color of green.
Fire is represented by the colors red, burgundy, maroon or pink. The pot and/or the adornment should include one or more of these colors.
Feng Shui coins may be added to the arrangement as well as little ornaments and figurines of metal or metallic coloring. The colors gold, silver, brass, bronze and copper may also be used as substitutes for metal.
