Dracaena sanderiana is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to Central Africa. Keeping lucky bamboo inside houses and business places is believed to bring happiness and prosperity, and this belief has promoted sales of lucky bamboo shoots grown in decorative pots.The plant has become the most popular indoor plant in certain parts of India, where the plants are usually imported from China and Taiwan.
A perennial herb, reaching a height of 100 cm, the plant has slightly twisted leaves of grey-green colour, with a length of which is up to 23 cm. 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 and its related varieties are popular houseplants. It is a suitable plant in a confined space, and the most suitable place is a scattered light or semi-shade site because direct sunlight causes yellowing and burning of leaves. Temperatures range from 15°C to 22°C. It requires average warmth, good illumination, regular watering and water spray. If planted in the ground, it loses its bamboo-like look and it would fill with a leaf-like shape like other dragon trees.
