my parents gave me a lucky bamboo plant and the only thing that has grown on it are the leaves... i noticed there is wax on the tip. i was wondering what that was for and if i removed it would it make the stalk of the plant grow? because i want to have it be a bigger plant

RE: bamboo wax

No the stalk will not grow. The wax is there to seal it to protect it.

You will get shoots out of the side of the stalk and they can grow quite high if you let them. (I trim mine off.) You may get a shoot from the top at the side but this has nothing to do with the wax.

RE: bamboo wax

Wax on the tip is just for decorating, instead of green wax, red wax can be used in some heart shaped lucky bamboo stalks arrangement, in fact they will never encourage the growing. Clean water, fresh air, sunlight(not direct) are three elements to grow a healthy lucky bamboo plant.
