This stall holder told the Hound that Lucky Bamboo is a traditional Chinese gift to bring good fortune to a business. You can find a range of sizes and price points (from R20) at this stall in Gifts World at Oriental City Rivonia. Interestingly enough, Lucky Bamboo isn’t bamboo at all, and it isn’t Chinese either. It’s a member of the Dracaena genus and native to West Africa.
After the tough year that 2012 has been for many, a gift of Lucky Bamboo will send the right message. All you need to do is keep it watered, and it will stay green all year round.
