Money Plant's Preferred Growing Conditions
Money plants require warmer temperatures (15o to 30o C). At a temperature lower than 10o C, the leaves will turn yellow and develop spots. It thrives best in medium to bright indirect sunlight (bright but filtered light); its growth is slowed in environments with low light. In too little or too much light, the leaves will become discolored.
It requires frequent watering from spring to autumn, but over-watering should be avoided in the winter. It grows well if the top layer of soil is dried out occasionally.
It can be propagated from stem cuttings. The best season for using cuttings is either summer or spring. It can be grown on moss sticks as a climber or allowed to trail down.
A special characteristic of money
lant is that it can grow in a water-filled container without any soil. It can survive in a bottle filled with water alone for a reasonable time, if you simply keep changing or refilling the water. Although many plants can be grown hydroponically, money plants can survive on the naturally occurring minerals in plain water, without the addition of nutrients.
Money plants grown in soil-filled pots prosper if they are fertilized well with organic and inorganic fertilizers. Urea should be applied to the pot frequently, with occasional additions of phosphorus (in the form of single superphosphate or any other phosphate fertilizer) and potash (muriate of potash or any other suitable fertilizer).
Although money plants are hardy and easy to grow, one may opt for plastic or synthetic plants instead, as these will never dry and will always decorate your house
Lucky Bamboo, also known as Dracaena, has been an Asian symbol of good fortune and prosperity for thousands of years. Only recently has it made its way across the Pacific Ocean into the homes and offices of Westerners. As Asian culture is continually becoming more popular in the West in the form of martial arts, yoga, tai chi, and feng shui, the symbolism of Lucky Bamboo has also found an increasingly larger place in Western culture and has transformed homes and offices into spaces of security and energy.
The Lucky Bamboo plant has naked branches that end in tufts of long, thin leaves. As the plant ages, the growing leaves eventually develop into the plant stalk. For this reason, once the stalk is cut, it will no longer grow taller. As the stalk develops, the plant can be manipulated by wires to take on commonly-seen twisting, bending shapes. Leaves that have developed into a stalk can be clipped at its base and placed in distilled water to start more bamboo. The "parent" stalk then grows more leaf sprouts and continues this
