Ask the Expert: About my lucky bamboo
If the thick stem of my lucky bamboo has turned yellow is there any way to get it green again? The plant is about 2 1/2 feet in height. Thanks you. Patsy

Once a lucky bamboo stalk turns yellow it will not turn back to green. If the stalk is staying firm, you can leave it be. However, I usually remove the yellowing stalks from a container holding healthy green stalks. You can propagate new stalks from the yellow one if it still has green parts. Our blog post We are not always lucky with lucky bamboo details the process of propagating lucky bamboo.
