Dracaena braunii

Dracaena braunii is a species of the genus Dracaena. It is also known as Dracaena sanderiana, after the German–English gardener Henry Frederick Conrad Sander (1847–1920). Common names include Sander's dracaena, ribbon dracaena, lucky bamboo, curly bamboo, Chinese water bamboo, friendship bamboo, Goddess of Mercy plant, Belgian evergreen, and ribbon plant. Although the word bamboo occurs in several of this plant's common names, D. braunii is of an entirely different taxonomic order from true bamboos. Despite several of its common names that suggest it is from China or Belgium, it is a native African species.

If you have "bamboo" in your house, it is most likely NOT bamboo. It is Dracaena braunii. This video is on how to grow more lucky bamboo from pieces you already have. If you love decorating with it, this is the best way to do it, as they can become expensive to buy continually. This guy is seriously the real deal in how to care for Lucky Bamboo. With his advice I managed to save a lucky bamboo stalk that was snapped in half and thrown in the garbage. ...Long story.
