Bamboo flooring is made by cutting bamboo stalks into thin strips, which are then glued together to form planks. The planks may be left in their natural color or they may be stained or carbonized to create a different color. Once the planks are formed, they are then milled to create a smooth surface, and a tongue and groove system is added for easy installation. The planks are then dried, sanded and finished with a protective coating to make them durable and resistant to moisture and wear. This type of custom flooring makes for a very exotic look and feel within your home.
Please be aware that bamboo flooring comes with some downsides. Excessive moisture or wet areas can cause warping on bamboo floors that are much more noticeable than hardwoods.

Lucky Bamboo Care
It can’t stay well in bright light, so indirect and required light will make your bamboo plant happy. It can stay well in low light conditions but you will see some less growth but direct sunlight can burn the plant. Select any suitable area where every part of the plant can receive sunlight.
You will get different suggestions from everywhere regarding watering. Most people say that they frequently change the water and many say that there is no need to change the water. I mostly change the water between 45-60 days and my plant stays happy and well.
Make sure that your water is covering the roots of the plant very well and add some water after 2 days to fill the requirements. Water can start smelling after a few days, so it’s better to change the water.
Mineral water is suitable and you can use purified water instead of hard tap water. If you are using tap water and the plant is showing some small brown dots so prevent such water. Purified water is suitable and it is not going to cost more than 2 dollars for one month and you will see good results.
Best Container Size For Lucky Bamboo
Have you grown it in a dish or a medium like that? If yes make sure that there is an extra 1-inch gap from the wall of the dish, so plant roots can spread easily. I have grown my lucky bamboo in a medium-size dish around 2 years back and now its roots are crawling with each other, so I decided to shift my plant to a large size dish. Select a tray that can handle about 3 inches of water and all the roots of the plant are easily covered in water.
I am having my bamboo plants for more than 2 years but I have never fertilized them, if you see that plants need fertilizers then Super Green fertilizers are suitable to use in water.
Lucky bamboo plants can have mealybugs and spider mites over them continue to check and verify if you spot anyone. In recent two years, I don’t spot any pests over my plant but kept and eye on the plant and take action on time.
