Can I add seashells (instead of rocks) in the water of my Lucky Bamboo plant? I’m wondering if the calcium in the seashells may not be good for the Lucky Bamboo Though I’d love to use seashells instead of rocks.

You certainly can add some sea shells to the water, they will help act as support to the plants and meet the earth item for feng shui.

Lucky Bamboo Plant

I have a lucky bamboo plant. One of the stalks started turning yellow and then turned mushy, so I threw it away because I figured it was fungus. I cut the root balls of the other 2 stalks and cleaned out the container and tried replanting them. Will the roots grow back or did I just kill my plant?

My Lucky Bamboo plant is cemented in the pot which is filled with colored pebbles. Have you heard of bamboo plants planted this way? When I water it, I pick it up by the stalk and carry it to the sink and keep adding water until the pot overflows. It is doing fine, but I could not find this kind of plant on your web.

Lucky bamboo is often grown in water along with pebbles or marbles, but I'm not sure about cementing it into the pot. If it seems to be doing fine, though, you can keep growing it that way. Here are our articles about it.

If potted in soil they can become infected easily with a fungus or bacteria such as Root Rot.

Growing in water you can keep a close eye on the health of your plant and it's roots.
