Plants that Bring Good Luck

Lucky Bamboo in ceramic pot

Lucky Bamboo

The Lucky Bamboo plant is an easy good luck plant to identify as it has “lucky” in its name! Also, depending on the type of luck you want determines the number of stalks you’re going to want your lucky bamboo to have. For instance, 2 stalks will give you double luck in the areas of love and relationships. Three stalks attract longevity, prosperity, and happiness, 4 stalks…. Is an unlucky number so never get a bamboo plant with just 4 stalks, 5 represents luck in all areas of your life, and 6 through 11 covers everything from luck in health, life, relationships, happiness, prosperity, wealth, and positivity.
