It doesn’t require a lot of care, which makes it a favorite house plant for many people who simply have no time to dedicate to growing plants, despite the fact they enjoy green surroundings. According to legends, this plant brings happiness, success and pleasure to its home, not to mention it completely beautifies its surroundings.
However, this plant is really not a bamboo. It is called Dracaena senderiana and it resembles bamboo, which explains the popular name.

Dracaena senderiana owes its popularity to the combination of low maintenance and high decorative potential.
