Adding Elements To Lucky Bamboo
Ask the Expert:Bamboo Plants
I have a small top vase with 3 curly Bamboo plants, they have been beautiful for the 3 years that I have had them. I recently bought some orange glass disks to put them in to match the new colors in my kitchen. They started turning yellow, and the smaller new leaves were falling off.
I have always changed their water at least once a week, and use plant food as per your directions. Please help! I don't want to loose them, today I took them out of the glass disks, washed the roots really well and put them back in plain water. I do want to use the orange glass disks if you have a solution for me.

You may need to clean the container as well, just in case the discs had a residue that affect the lucky bamboo.
Any time you add elements such as pebbles, glass discs, rocks, etc. to your lucky bamboo container, you need to wash them first. Why? Because, you want to make sure they do not have any chemical residue on them that might harm the lucky bamboo. So I suggest you first let the lucky bamboo recover from it's trauma. You can then wash the discs with soapy water, rinse them thoroughly and then place them in the lucky bamboo container.
You might check to see if the discs you purchased are safe for plants especially lucky bamboo. Not all pebbles, rocks or decorative discs are safe to use in aquatic situations. So check before you place your discs back in with the lucky bamboo.
