Ask the Expert:Re-plant my Lucky Bamboo
As you can see from the pictures my lucky bamboo plant has (I think) all but outgrown its original glass planter.
I would like to re-plant it in the new planter (see picture).
Will it look okay in this new planter?
Can I use rocks to fill it (along with the small pebbles it came with) and if so what kind of rocks I should use?
Clean and wash them?
What else do I need to be aware of?
Plant Expert Reply:
I think the lucky bamboo will look fine in the crytal shoe.Â You have two options: 1) You can place river rock pebbles in the container.Â You will need to wash the rock first with warm soapy water and then rinse them before placing them in the shoe. 2) Don't place any pebbles in the container - I have had lucky bamboo in a vase without pebbles.
When you transfer the lucky bamboo use distilled water.Â You might lightly prine the roots at this time. The lucky bamboo may go into transplant shock for a couple of weeks. Don't panic just let it be and it will come out of it.
