Bamboo Plant Dying, Can I Prune It?

mikellesbrownthumb(Garden Hardiness Zone 5)February 18, 2009

My bamboo plant is dying. Two of the stems come from the same root system, one is dead the other is fine; is there anything I can do for it?

As a side note: I use filtered water, not too high, give it light, but not too much, and it is still sad.

What should I do about the one whose leaves all died?

What you have is not a bamboo at all. It is Dracaena sanderiana aka Lucky Bamboo.
