for the choisest, healthiest and "luckiest" plants. If you're someone

bamboo shoots" were a marketing gimmick thought up by an enterprising businessman.
He didn't expect it to be such a phenomenon, but since it became such a hot

with a bit of marketing savvy, you can create your own Prosperity Plant and
cash in on the craze! Nice way to get people to add a little bit of green (and luck) into
their lives, and when you've made yourself a bundle of cash, I bet you'll tell me
there REALLY is such a thing as Prosperity Plants!
