Inspired by the lovely Lucky Bamboo plants at Shri's spacious and stylish Manhattan loft, I bought myself a Lucky Bamboo plant from one of the stores on 28th street (between 6th and 7th) in the Flower District. I read somewhere that Lucky Bamboo is "luckiest" if received as a gift - not sure though how much luck this plant is going to bring me given that I gifted it to myself!
Lucky Bamboo plants are really low maintenance and are just perfect for Manhattan apartments that may not get much sunlight. They don't even need soil in order to grow. Just some pebbles and some pure water every now and then is enough to keep them going. Hopefully I can keep this plant alive longer than my croton which died a slow death from lack of nutrition while I was on vacation in India.
