    Uh, Hawaii is still a state (at least for now!), just not part of the contiguous 48. Yes, it's also called "Lucky Bamboo" here, along with other common names. It's the Money Tree when grown outside. The plant in my back yard is about 8 ft. tall.

    Wow, two out of three Gigapan comments so far have been about plants' scientific names... I've noticed an overlap between photographers and musicians & mathematicians, but plant taxonomists is a new one. In the US, we call this stuff "lucky bamboo."

    This plant is difinitely NOT bamboo. Bamboo is a grass with hollow stems. It does not have leaf scars as shown here, nor does it generally have axillary buds on its vertical branches. The main stems of bamboo species are at or below ground surface, just like the grasses that you mow in your lawn. Some small Dracaena species are sometimes called "Heavenly Bamboo", but that is a colloquialism only.
