    Will keep a look out for it, have seen it before at Woolworths and nurseries.

    My folks bought one back or something very similar on a ship from S.America when I was very young.. I remember we had it in a bowl with water for many years and well after I gave up my dummy ;D .

    Hi Bella, sent you a PM, we have those in stock, about 70cm and nice leaves on top, large ones R98 and smaller ones R60 :laugh:
    Makes a stunning display in a vase with pebbles, maybe 3 or 5/7 (keep the numbers odd = good feng shui)

    I know it's 4 years later, but can someone tell me where I can find lucky bamboo plants? Are they still on sale at China shops?
