How do you get more leaf buds?

thiskidhasplantsJune 25, 2007

I have some lucky bamboo and I want to know how to stimulate it to sprout more buds.

If anyone knows a good way to do this, please reply.

If you mean you want your bamboo to branch out from a single stalk, to many branches, you can cut off the top. Branches will form where the cut is made. You can take the clipping you took of the plant and place it in water so that it will root into another plant too.
See pruning and propagating at the link.
