Bonsai Trees and Bonsai Plants

Bonsai trees can be grown indoors in containers to replicate their outdoor counterparts. There is a calm and tranquility in the artful care for bonsai. Using wire and pruning techniques you can train and direct the tree’s branches as your bonsai plant grows.

Lucky Bamboo

There’s different varieties of lucky bamboo plants, but they aren’t actually bamboo plants at all. They are dracaena and resemble bamboo plants. Like bonsai, lucky bamboo can be trained to grow in a certain direction, like a tight curl or broad spiral

The number of stalks in a lucky bamboo plant arrangement have different meanings. Two stalks symbolize love. Three lucky bamboo stalks symbolize Fu (happiness), Lu (wealth), and Soh (long life). In fact you can find arrangements of up to 21 stalks, representing a powerful blessing.

Money Tree Plants
