Sightings of 5 Foot Tall Lucky Bamboo - Think It Needs A Trim
Ask the Expert:
I have had a Lucky Bamboo plant on my desk at work for about 4 years. It is now 5 feet tall. Can I trim the Bamboo without killing the plant? It has
certainly been a conversation piece. Thank you in advance. Renee
Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply:
You can trim your lucky bamboo and create new stalks in the process. You will need some rooting hormone from your local garden center. Begin by deciding how tall you want your lucky bamboo to be then find a node around that height. Nodes are the raised rings on the stalk. Cut the stalk about an inch above the node. New growth will appear from the cut in a few weeks - after a couple of days later start misting your stalks lightly every couple of days to encourage the new growth. Don't fertilize for a couple of weeks.
Now you will have a lucky bamboo stalk that has no roots. Dip the cut end of this piece of lucky bamboo in rooting hormone and let dry over night. Place the unrooted stalks in water and patiently wait for the roots to form. In no time, you will have new lucky bamboo stalks. Don't Fertilize until roots are well established.
