Clermont Garden Club member, Arlene Rand, (pictured here with Cooper Librarian Amy Hand), is sharing her Lucky Bamboo with library patrons this month. Lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana), also known as curly bamboo, is a tropical plant valued for its ease of care, easily manipulated growth and pleasing appearance. The plant’s common name derives from its supposed ability to bring good fortune to its owner and its resemblance to real bamboo. Native to Asia and Africa, lucky bamboo requires a warm, humid climate to thrive, so gardeners typically grow the plant indoors.
