In the last decade, Lucky Bamboo is easily one of the most popular plants to decorate the indoors. Property owners who owned full-furnished rentals see the benefits in redecorating in a rather unique way for their properties; an indoor plant. And not just any indoor plant, but a lucky bamboo. Let’s get to know this plant.
What is this “Lucky Bamboo”?
Apparently, the Lucky Bamboo is not at all a bamboo. They merely resemble what a bamboo sort of look like.
These lucky bamboo are a part of the Dracaena family. They live in waters and apparently, they require little maintenance to keep them good-looking and healthy.
They are one of those plants that people have grown to cultivate because of their aesthetics. A lot of the lucky bamboo sold as decorative plants have various shapes.
To grow a lucky bamboo in the indoors of your rental property, you need to remember several things.
First off, remember to replace the water every once in a while.
The frequency depends on many factors of the environment. Many people replace the water once every two months, or once the water starts to give off a foul odor.
It is also important to grow the lucky bamboo in a container with a sufficient size.
For instance, make sure that between the roots and the edge of the container, give at least 1 inch of distance. This is important to let the roots properly support the body of the plants. Another thing to note is that; healthy shades of lucky bamboo’s roots are reddish.
As their name suggests, these plants bring good luck
Or so the Chinese superstition suggests.
These lucky bamboos are known to be a good element of Feng Shui. But regardless of the mystic powers this dracaena may or may not have, having it indoor is an improvement to your rental property.
If you’re not particularly convinced to have the lucky bamboo, in particular, it is actually always a good idea to start with plants that you prefer. Go for succulents; cactus and the likes, for super easy maintenance.
Indoor plants help purify the stagnant indoor air
Indoor air pollution is no doubt one of the causes of today’s various health problems. From the common cold to allergy, stagnant air is bad news for health.
Rather than getting a more costly air purifier that would generate more expenses and spend electricity over time, get a plant instead.
Having plants indoor has been proven to significantly improve indoor air. On the other hand, redecorating your fully-furnished rental properties with plants would be one of the best moves you can do.
It will not only help improve indoor air, but it would also improve the look of your room significantly.
Redecorating with plants is cheap, fast, and effective
If you’re dissatisfied with how your rental property looks, you may start stressing out all of the huge, costly details such as the furniture. It’s time to change that thinking.
Indoor plants is apparently one of the most drastic changes that you can do to a room. It’s time to spruce up your space to increase the value of your furnished rentals.
Having plants indoors would make you rethink of the room’s natural lighting
Natural lighting is one of the most important element you should always take into consideration whenever a renovation or a redecorating project is on.
When caring for an indoor plant, you would want to rethink the lighting of your property.
This would bring you to the question; is your room well-lit in the first place? Brightly-lit room from natural lights is known to be more desirable.
