Lucky Bamboo (False Bamboo, Bamboo, Belgian Evergreen)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Lucky Bamboo (False Bamboo, Bamboo, Belgian Evergreen)
  • Latin Name: Dracaena sanderiana
  • Family Name: Asparagaceae (formerly Ruscaceae)
The False or Lucky Bamboo, like all plants in the Dracaena species, contains saponins (which are known to be toxic to fish and some other cold-blooded animals), as well as small amounts of calcium oxalate raphides.  As the content of these harmful properties seems to be somewhat higher in this plant than in its relatives, we advise against feeding this to your tortoise.  See also Cordyline

Do not confuse this plant with the true Bamboo, which is a completely different plant.
