Receipt of Plants
The pictures of plants shown on the American Gift Club web site, which includes the lucky bamboo, are shown as arrangement examples only. When you receive your plants, the leaves will not be as fully developed as the arrangement examples. We carefully select young bamboo plant sprouts for each order to ensure safer shipment and your growing enjoyment.
American Gift Club accepts only the best quality plants at their warehouse, so the plants are fresh and young. As it is with most live young plants, with patience and a nurturing environment, your bamboo will turn into mature and leafy plants that you desire.
Keeping the bamboo plants fresh is important, otherwise the bamboo could start turning yellow.
Our shipping policy is to deliver all orders promptly. The delivery via 2-3 day transit time insures that your bamboo spends the least amount of time inside its delivery box though there is still a risk that the plants may not arrive at their destination in fresh condition..
We will notify you immediately if we are out of stock on a product.

American Gift Club Quality Assurance
American Gift Club maintains high standards for its lucky bamboo plants. Our 2nd generation growers have grown unique and quality plants for decades. These experienced growers know their plants, and know how to pick the best ones for American Gift Club’s customers. Our select bamboo plants were grown in fields, in a perfect climate for growing Dracaenas.
To ensure high standards of plant quality and freshness, our growers ship their bamboo plants to American Gift Club by air. If the plants were shipped by a cheaper method, such as sea freight, it would take much longer for the plants to arrive (the plants stay in the container for about a month without fresh air and light).
For your enjoyment and growing pleasure, and in order to present you with quality plants in their freshest state, American Gift Club purchases only quality lucky bamboo plants from their experienced growers.
