8 Plants You Can Grow Without Soil

Bob Vila Logo By Jennifer Noonan of Bob Vila | Slide 1 of 8: Despite its name, lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana) isn’t actually bamboo at all. Rather, it’s a decorative houseplant known for its near indestructibility. These plants can thrive in soil, but most gardeners choose to grow them hydroponically. All you need is a glass of water at least an inch deep and a support system of gravel (or some other medium) to keep the plants standing straight. Available on Amazon; $12.99 for 38 stalks.
