lucky bamboo stalks yellow

Posted by terri12 (My Page) on

I have had LB for many years and never a problem until now. The stalks have rapidly started turning yellow form the bottom up. I have neglected changing the water until now but I'm worried it's to late. Do I cut the stem off and hope it will grow new roots? The two different stalks are about three feet tall and don't want to loose my favorite plant. Any suggestions?

lucky bamboo-how do I promote branching?

I have a single head dracaena that I would like to promote additional branches before it gets too tall and spindly. How do I do that?

RE: lucky bamboo stalks yellow

I cut off the top of my plant because the folliage and the top of the spiral was turning yellow and wrinkly.
It looked like there was a wax seal on the top of the plant that I hadn't noticed before.
I now have a cut plant and am wondering if there is something else I should do with it or just leave it alone.

After cut, it's better to grow the plant in the soil in garden or in a pot.

I had one of my stalks turn yellow also , little did i know that i wasn't supposed to water it with tap water ( and did ) So let that dry out and the remaining one is fine , and i am giving it tap water , but how much of the water should i give it for just one stalk?
