(un)Lucky Fortune Bamboo
Fortune bamboo is very easy to grow, very hardy and requires almost no care and attention; it just needs to stand in 8cm of water – out of direct sunlight. Any idiot can grow one and keep it alive.
In China they are considered lucky, as they can live for over 100 years and it is almost impossible to kill them.
I’ve had mine for 2 weeks and it died today.
