Lucky Bamboo can be grown in a vase or container with water and pebbles for support. Make sure the vase or container is long and thin enough to keep the bamboo upright. Keep the roots covered with water and top up when required.
Lucky Bamboo will need at least 10cm of water to grow roots, but the vase or container should be 3/4 full of water. The water should be changed completely every two weeks. Lucky Bamboo can be sensitive to chlorine and other chemicals often found in tap water, so where possible use rainwater or distilled water or leave tap water out for 24 hours to allow the chlorine to evaporate.
Bamboo stalks should be approximately 10cm from each other in the pot. This is to ensure that each stalk has sufficient space for their roots to develop. Drainage is also important. Plants grown in soil like a moderate amount of water. They don’t like to be over or under watered, so allow the top of the soil to dry out between watering. Giving to much water can wash away much needed nutrients in the soil and not enough water can dry them out to much.
In winter time, in colder climates around Australia, Lucky Bamboo can survive in lower temperatures but if the temperature stays below 5 degrees for prolong times they can wither. Bring Lucky Bamboo indoor to temperatures above 10 degrees so that they can keep growing, in fact Lucky Bamboo will only grow well in temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees.
