Traditional Feng Shui practitioners believe that the number of lucky bamboo stalks has meaning when put together in an arrangement, especially when given as gift. Luckily for us, almost any number of stalks in a lucky bamboo arrangement imparts luck or fortune in some way. Below are some common interpretations.
2 lucky bamboo – represents love
3 lucky bamboo – represents happiness
5 lucky bamboo – conveys good health
6 lucky bamboo – more happiness
7 lucky bamboo – seven is always thought of a lucky number
8 lucky bamboo – In Asian culture, the number 8 is viewed similarly to the number 7, in that it conveys luck of wealth.
9 lucky bamboo – conveys good fortune
21 lucky bamboo – encompasses all (health, happiness, wealth, and fortune)
But it never hurts to have a little more luck or lucky bamboo. Good luck.
