When I was redoing my office I knew I wanted it full of plants. We have a ton of pothos and spider plants and wanted to switch things up a bit so when I saw this Lucky Bamboo Plant I immediately snatched it up! Since I have never had one of these before I had to do some research on Lucky Bamboo Plant Care so I didn’t kill it!
Most of the time Lucky Bamboos will be found in vases of water with pebbles (for support). That’s what mine is. These plants can grow indefinitely like this.
If your Lucky Bamboo is in water, be sure to swap out the water every couple of weeks to keep things fresh.
Healthy roots are red so don’t be alarmed if you see that! It just means you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing.
The leaves are mildly toxic so leave them out of reach of pets or children that may want to taste them!
Lucky Bamboo Plant Care Tips + Tricks
How often do I water my Bamboo Plant?
I typically water mine about once a week. As mentioned above, bamboo plants can live in water so if it’s in rock make sure the roots are covered. If it’s in soil ensure that the soil doesn’t get too dry or stay too wet.
If they are living in water don’t let the water come up much higher than the roots!
How much sun does my bamboo plant need?
Bamboo plants do best in bright, indirect light so make sure they are getting full sun!
My office gets a lot of natural light so I keep my bamboo plant in the corner of that room.
If your plant starts losing color or look like it’s reaching for the light, move it to a spot with a bit more light. They don’t do well in dark places.
Why does my bamboo plant leaves turn yellow?
There are a few different reasons for this – it’s either getting too much sunlight, there’s too much soil or fertilizer, it’s not getting enough water or there’s too much chlorine in the water.
Most plants in general don’t like the chlorine in tap water so the best thing to do is full a bucket with water and leave it out for 24 hours to help neutralize it.
