Default Lucky Bamboo

I was looking for an easy house plant to take care of, so I purchased a lucky bamboo. Does anyone have one or know anything about them? Are they as durable as they seem to be?

Good, I wondered about it growing because it has little ties on it and I wonder if I should take those off.

Hee hee. Water them and give them plant food. If you're not good at remembering to water things (like me), get a cactus. I had one in Columbia. It was a tiny little thing.

My grandmother got lucky bamboo a loooooong time ago. She still has it so I guess it's pretty durable.

It says to only water once a week and to give fertilizer once a month and that is it.

my roommate in college had a pretty cool looking one. it was braided and planted in rocks, not soil. because of this it had to be watered everyday. but she still has it and got it in 2005.

My thumb is not at all "green", so I stay away from living plants. Giving me a plant would be terrible for the poor plant. You'd have to come up with a group called "plant abusers" and I'd be the 1st criminal! hehe...
