How frequently should we water the Lucky Bamboo

To keep the plant healthy, change the water in the bowl every two days. Place some pebbles around the roots to ensure that they are well-watered and have ample support.

What is the ideal soil mix for Lucky Bamboo?

Always keep the soil should slightly damp. Test it with your finger; if it’s not damp, add a little bit more water.

SUNLIGHT-In bright but indirect sunshine, the lucky bamboo thrives. Over exposure to the sun, on the other hand, can cause a lot of problems for the plant. In addition to natural light, the lucky bamboo thrives in artificial light. It's important to continuously rotate the plant so that all sides get the same amount of light. If the lucky bamboo's leaves are turning a light green hue, it's likely that the plant isn't getting enough light. To encourage healthy growth, it's critical to remove any yellow or dead leaves.

You can propagate lucky bamboo at any time using cuttings to create new plants for yourself or to give to someone as an auspicious gift. But the rooting won't be shaped like the kind of plant you'd purchase.

    1. Use a sterile, sharp cutting shear to take a stem cutting off the main stalk that has at least one leaf joint and trim the leaves to expose the growth nodes.
    2. Put the bare cutting into a container filled with enough distilled water to completely cover the bottom of the cutting.
    3. Keep the water clean and fresh as you watch for the development of red roots. Roots should appear in around 30 days.
    4. When the roots emerge, put the stalk in a decorative vase with water and pebbles or a pot with soil.

Also, stay away from fertilizing it for a while as well.
