Help, Lucky Bamboo In Soil Is Yellowing!
Ask the Expert:lucky bamboo plant
My son gave me a lucky bamboo about 1 1/2 years ago. When I received it, it was in soil. One of the stalks is turning really yellow now. Should I put it only in water. I don''t want my son to think I don't just love it and I don't want to lose it either. Can you help me to bring it back to life. Shirley

Lucky bamboo that has been grown in soil should not be place in a water only environment. If the yellow stalk is completely yellow it will continue to die. You need to remove it from the soil and discard it, unless the stalk contains a healthy green section. If it has a healthy green section, you can propagate a new stalk. Read one of our previous posts that explains how to propagate lucky bamboo which also includes pictures. You can place the newly cut piece in water or soil.
To keep the other stalk from turning yellow, you need to watch out for a few issues. One make sure the soil is moist but not soggy.Â Soil that holds to much water and can't drain will cause lucky bamboo to turn yellow.Â Watch your fertilizer - too much can cause lucky bamboo to turn yellow. Last but not least, make sure your lucky bamboo does not receive too much light or a severe change in temperature.
