Lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana) is a popular houseplant known for its low-maintenance care and its ability to thrive in a variety of conditions. However, one question that many people have is whether or not lucky bamboo needs light.
The answer is yes, lucky bamboo does need light to survive. However, it is important to note that lucky bamboo does not need direct sunlight. In fact, direct sunlight can scorch the leaves and damage the plant. Instead, lucky bamboo prefers indirect sunlight.
What is indirect sunlight?
Indirect sunlight is light that is filtered through something, such as a curtain or a tree. It is also the light that is reflected off of other surfaces, such as a wall or a piece of furniture.
Examples of places in the house where there is indirect sunlight include:
- A few feet away from a south- or west-facing window
- In a corner of a room that receives plenty of natural light
- Next to a north- or east-facing window that is covered by a sheer curtain
How much light does lucky bamboo need?
Lucky bamboo needs at least 6 hours of indirect sunlight per day. If your lucky bamboo plant is not getting enough light, it will start to show signs of stress, such as yellowing leaves or stunted growth.
Here are some tips for providing your lucky bamboo plant with the right amount of indirect sunlight:
- Place your lucky bamboo plant near a north- or east-facing window that is covered by a sheer curtain.
- If you live in a low-light home, you can supplement the natural light with a grow light.
- Avoid placing your lucky bamboo plant in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.
- If you notice that the leaves of your lucky bamboo plant are becoming yellow or brown, move the plant to a brighter location.
