What’s Green and Lucky in the month of March?

Hint: It’s NOT what you think!

Well it’s that time of the year again. Spring beckons! From the peeping up of crocuses, to the over-saturation of St. Patty’s Day decor and all its shenanigans, GREEN and LUCK are the much celebrated themes of March.

Now for many, the most festive March holiday by far would have to be St. Patty’s Day.

Even if you don’t celebrate the saint himself, you certainly partake in the symbolism of the day.

We know St. Patty has his shamrock, which is said to bring luck and good fortune to all. And culturally, we have come to look forward to the festive pints of green beer, Leprechaun hats, and corned beef & green cabbage.

But can we just acknowledge for a moment that ‘Green and Lucky’ applies to more than this beloved Irish Saint and his four leaf clover?

Time to discover the household joys of LUCKY BAMBOO!

If you enjoy our products and follow our blog, you know that moso bamboo is what we use to make our Ever Bamboo Charcoal Pouches to deodorize and dehumidify all the sneaky places where stink lives. But today, in honor of the very green and lucky month of March, we wanted to celebrate OUR favourite charm - Lucky Bamboo.

In Chinese culture, Lucky Bamboo is seen as a symbol of virtue. It is said to reflect the inner landscape of people's souls and emotions, and is often looked upon as a token of traditional Chinese values. Considered a small but thoughtful gift said to bestow good fortune upon special life events, the nature of bamboo’s ‘luck’ is measured in stalks.

For example, a plant of two stalks would be the perfect little housewarming gift for newlyweds to bring love and luck to the marriage. A plant of three stalks bestows happiness, and is the most popular by far. But four stalks? Good luck (no pun) even finding it, as it is believed by some to draw negative energy and is rarely ever given! So be sure to take STALK of your offering ;)

Another wonderful thing about Lucky Bamboo is it’s important role in Feng Shui.

Feng (wind) Shui (water) — is the ancient Chinese practice of placement of structures and things to enhance the flow of chi (life force or spiritual energy), and create harmonious environments that support happiness, health, abundance and peace. In the Lucky Bamboo plant, the five elements of Feng Shui are all present (or symbolically represented) in each plant.

  • Wood – The wood element is in the form of the stalks of bamboo.
  • Earth – The tiny brown rocks or pebbles that support the plant inside the container.
  • Water – The element in which the bamboo itself grows.
  • Fire – That little red ribbon or other red adornment that you often find on the plant’s stem or base? This is to represent fire.
  • Metal – A metal, glass or ceramic container is often used to house the plant. Glass is considered part of the metal element, and if the container is ceramic, a coin can often be found on the bottom to represent the metal element.

This beautiful plant is a simple, yet beautiful way, to incorporate and elevate the good juju in your home or work space, while bringing harmony and luck to those who receive it. So eat your heart out St. Patty! We’ve got this one covered.

Have a happy stink free day,

Team Ever Bamboo & our very LUCKY Bamboozler.
