The screw shape of the Lucky Chinese Bamboo is obtained by keeping it in darkness, exposing only one area to the light and turning the plant daily.  It's not a true bamboo plant and grows in water.  This one started out in a container that became too small.  I learned, after accidentally breaking off a couple of pieces, that pieces can be rooted in water  It has really become gawky but I haven't killed it yet.
