Dracaena sanderiana (aka Lucky Bamboo), is a perennial herbthat has slightly twisted leaves of grey-green colour. The stem is fleshy, which distinguishes it from bamboo. It requires bright, ventilated areas. It tolerates dry air and does not require constant spraying. A very tenacious plant, it is rather difficult to destroy it.
Dracaena sanderiana is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to Central Africa. It was named after the German–English gardener Henry Frederick Conrad Sander (1847–1920). Although the word bamboo occurs in several of this plant's common names, D. sanderiana is of an entirely different taxonomic order from true bamboos.
Although some have had success with submerging Lucky Bamboo, we recommend that you do not. Instead, keep the leaves out of the water and the stalk/roots in the water for best growth. Great for use in a betta bowl or in an HOB for additional filtering i.e. nitrates. Lucky bamboo is a great filter for aquarium waste water. Its massive root system collects the fish waste matter and ammonia. It is also decorative and would be ideal for Paludariums.
