Technically these are not actually bamboo but how cute do they look. They have the same type of cane as normal bamboo but only a fraction of the size. This make it perfect to have on your bench at home to brighten  things up.  

Lucky bamboo makes a great gift for family or friends. Looking for that perfect Kris Kringle gifts (for work colleague or other) or a gift for your child's teacher then have a look at a little lucky bamboo plant.  Just give it a drink when the water runs out and you can fully enjoy your little plant.
