3 Water sparingly.

Your lucky Bamboo plant doesn’t need a lot of water. In fact, too much is bad for it.

(1)  Water your plant about once a week and ensure that there’s a few inches at all times, enough to cover the roots.

(2) If you have soil in your pot, make sure that it’s not too moist or dry. Your bamboo plant can live well in just water, so over soiling or fertilizing can actually harm it.

4 Keep your plant out of direct sunlight. 

The wild is usually shaded by direct sunlight by other, bamboo plants. Your plants should be kept in an open and bright area, but not exposed to direct sunlight all day.

  • To best care for your Lucky Bamboo, keep it away from windows that get a lot of light. Instead, place it in a part of your room not so exposed.
  • Your Lucky Bamboo plant will also grow best in temperatures between in 65°F and 90°F.

 5 Arrange your stalks.

If you wish to style the Lucky Bamboo plant, choose a few prime stalks to make a linked arrangement and put it on display. You can manipulate the stalks to grow around each other or curl with a bit of work; to do this you have to use younger stalks that haven’t grown a lot and hardened yet.

  • You can simply plant your stalks in a line or rows if you want straight stalks.
  • To curl your Lucky Bamboo plant, get a cardboard box and cut off the bottom and one side. Place the box over your plant with the open end facing your light source. Your stalks will begin to curl towards the light as they grow. Once you see a bend, rotate your plant.
  • You can also wrap some wire around younger stalks crisscrossing them. As they grow you will add more wire to keep them stable as they intertwine.
