Lucky bamboo in soil?

Posted by valeriannightmares 8 (My Page) on

This may sound like a silly question, but can my lucky bamboo that i bought from the grocery store grow in soil, or do I have to keep it in a water only environment?

If it can grow in soil, what type of soil is best for it? anyone know?

RE: Lucky bamboo in soil?

I have my lucky bamboo growing in soil because I found that easier. I too transitioned mine from water to soil as well.

The mix I used is Miracle Grow Moisture Control potting soil, a little sand and mixed in orchid bark. My plants have grown large and stay very healthy for years now.

I do not know how necessary the orchid bark is in the mix. However, the recipe was recommended at the time and I found it works very well.
