Root Formation on Shoots?
I was tending to my plants the other day and found what I thought at first to be an infestation on my lucky bamboo. After some careful inspection and the removal of some leaves I discovered that the leafy shoot off of the main branch had sprouted roots about 1/2" away from the stalk and they had burrowed back into the the shoot's solid core. Has anyone ever had this happen before?
I suppose this could explain why that shoot had had no new growth in over 1 year.
I ended up breaking the majority of the shoot off (below the shoot's roots) and planting it in some dirt. I think it will do fine. I am a little worried about the mother plant though It only has some little leaf nubs left as it only had 1 shoot to begin with.
