Stunted Lucky Bamboo

Ask the Expert: I READ THE FOLLOWING INFO CARING FOR LUCKY BAMBOO ON LUCKY BAMBOO PLANTS. I’VE HAD ONE FOR ABOUT A YEAR OR SO AND IT DOESN’T GROW MUCH AND IS KIND REAL PALE. TO RENEW IT CAN I DUMP OUT THE WATER THAT’S BEEN IN IF FOR QUITE A WHILE AND HAS A LOT OF MINERALS ETC AND REFILL IT WITH BOTTLED WATER? IF SO, SHOULD I LIGHTLY SCRAP OFF THE MINERAL DEPOSITS? Todd

  1. Todd,

    Paleness and lack of growth usually indicate lack of nutrients and insufficient light. I would begin by changing the water – use distilled water if possible. Wipe the lucky bamboo stalk off with a damp cloth before placing them back in the container. Move the container a little closer to your light source — not too close. After about a week take a very diluted solution of plant fertilizer and add it to the water. Then change your water every couple of weeks and fertilize every couple of months. Your should see improvements in your lucky bamboo in a couple of weeks.

    My mother purchased a Lucky Bamboo plant and wants to know if she change it to another pot without harming it. She also wants to know where are the seeds in it, if any or do you use the roots to produce new ones.

  4. Michelle,

    Your mother can change place the lucky bamboo in a different pot without any problems. Fill the new container with distilled water and treat the lucky bamboo as before. Your mother might want to read Caring for Lucky Bamboo; it is full of lucky bamboo information.

    Although Dracaena do form seed, most lucky bamboo is propagated vegetatively through cuttings.
