Lucky Bamboo Indoor plant

Zone 62040 | Lizzie62040 added on November 24, 2015 | Answered

I was given a lucky bamboo plant because it is slowly trying to die. Is there a way I can cut the stalk or take off the part growing leaves to start a new plant or keep this one alive? All my leaves are droopy and turning yellow.

You can cut the top of the Lucky Bamboo and reroot.
You will need to cut it with a clean sharp knife.
Dip the cut end in root hormone and let it dry on the stem for a few hours.
Then place the cutting in bottled water, about 1 ".
Keep the water level constant and watch for the new roots.
