Someone gave me 3 of these lucky stalks, which is imparted as giving a wish of happiness. They were kind of malnurished looking though but I gladly accepted them. As I was pretty busy at this time and put them in cut off plastic jug with water and kind of forgot about them. One of them died ): Not ever having the opportunity to care for bamboo, I started reading. I was surprised to find out that this is not a true bamboo at all and after reading the following article, I now feel confident that I can care for my remaining 2 lucky bamboos indoors where I can keep a closer eye on them.
