Repot Lucky Bamboo with tangled roots.
Ask the Expert: How do I separate lucky bamboos?
My son wants to repot his lucky bamboo and separate it into two different pots. But, the roots are all intertwined/tangled. Can he cut them without harming the plants? How should he cut them? What is the best way? Vicki
It won't hurt to cut the roots, but I usually work my fingers through the roots (similar to untangling hair) until I free them from each other. If you are going to cut them try to cut them as far from the lucky bamboo plant as possible. By doing this you will ensure that each stalk has plenty of roots to sustain it. Also check for any pest or problems before you repot the lucky bamboo. Flower Shop Network has a great newsletter about Caring For Lucky Bamboo and we have many blog posts concerning lucky bamboo issues if you would like further information.
