Common name: Lucky bamboo, ribbon dracaena, ribbon plant, belgian evergreen, chinese water bamboo, friendship bamboo, water bamboo, and Sander’s dracaena Scientific name: Dracaena braunii (also known as D. sanderiana) Family: Asparagaceae Care level: Easy Lighting: Low-light, too high of light will cause yellowing of leaves Plant size: 5 feet, though this won’t happen in aquariums. The leaves can grow 9 inches high. Water temperature: 65-90 Fahrenheit. Fertilizer: Not required, in fact, fertilizing them may cause the plants leaves to turn yellow. Growth rate: In my experience, slow. I have had new leaves growing though. Outside of aquariums it will grow faster. Some leaves need to be above the water line in order for it to grow new ones. Placement: I think it looks best in the middle or the back of the tank. Propagation: Cut about an inch above the node- the rings on the bamboo. You will now have a top and bottom. pH: 6.5-8.0 Notes: Not actually an aquatic plant. If kept fully submerged for too long (a few months) it will rot. It’s highly toxic to cats and dogs, but I’ve never heard of problems with fish, nor have I had any of my own. Shrimp may also be affected by it's toxin. It’s available in a curly variant too. Please let me know where I can improve on this, feedback is also appreciated. A picture will be added later.
