I love bamboo. It's so green and thin, and whimsical. And lucky? Well, maybe not for me. I mean, I have no proof that it doesn't provide me with good or bad luck. It's more like I don't have the best luck with it. 

Exhibit A:
 One lovely green stalk of bamboo. And one not so lucky stick of bamboo. I don't know what I did to it.
 Clearly, one of them is thriving.
  Or at least, one of them isn't dead...
 They both received equal amount of water and sunlight. I guess one of them is just a wee bit luckier!
Let's see how lucky this last bamboo standing is. Not sure if I should be hoping it's lucky enough to not  perish or if I should be hoping 1 strand of lucky bamboo is enough to bring me luck!

Ha...that made me smile. I'm gonna say the dead one had a prior illness that you were unaware of at purchase. :) The green one sure is lovely!

Oh well, at least one lived! I agree it does have a whimsical shape. Very pretty!

Strange how one looks so healthy and the other not so healthy.
As least you have one, if it was me they would probably both be not very well.

Can you propogate bamboo easily? Looks like the "dead" one wants to grow some new shoots.

I love bamboo too but have killed it every stinking time I've tried. I wonder why that is?

I love it but have never had one - maybe I should try to find one! :-)

Too funny. They’re kind of like Yin and Yang bamboo!
