    Can I buy two and keep one in the East and one in the Southeast for good health AND good fortune or is that being greedy? I have learned so much and can not wait to get a bamboo plant of my own.

    I had one of these in my teen years. Sadly, I have a black thumb and managed to kill it. As an adult, I would love to try again. They remind me of my dream to see Japan one day.

    Bamboo is such a decorative plant, and I never knew that it had so much positivity attached to it! It is not dangerous to pets, is it? I’d love to get one but I have a cat, so only non-toxic plants can enter the house 😉

  • December 2, 2017 at 5:50 pm

    Awesome. Bamboo is the one that I like most. I’ll do a lucky-bamboo for myself. It’s amazing.
