I have a Lucky Bamboo and it was doing fine. All of a sudden the leaves have turned brown and are limp. It has stopped growing in height also. I have made sure that it doesn't dry out. We have well water here and I was wondering if there could be something in that, and this is why the plant is now this way, or is it possible that it has outgrown its container?
Any suggestions???? BARB

Do you keep the jar filled with water?Â If you are only watering evey few days, the lack of water would be the porblem.Â Lucky bamboo grown in water needs at least 3inches of water at all times.Â The problem is more likely a fluoride problem. Believe it or not private well water oftem contains fluoride which can cause yellowing in lucky bamboo.Â I suggests you pour some of your well water into a container with a wide mouth and let it set over night.Â The fluoride will evaporate during this period.Â You can then use it to water your lucky bamboo. Â I also suggest cutting the tops opf your lucky bamboo offÂ - the stalks will create new leaves.
