I have a lucky bamboo plant and it calls for a fertilizer on the care instructions however I am unsure of what kind of fertilizer to use and do not want to kill it. It is in water only, no soil, so I assume that calls for a liquid fertilizer. But how do I know which one is best?
Any 10-10-10 liquid fertilizer will be just fine. Just add a single drop to the water when you change it. This article has more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/lucky-bamboo/growing-lucky-bamboo-indoor.htm
The online article indicates fertilizer should be added to the water. What kind? Thanks so much.
Any liquid, all-purpose, fertilizer will be fine, as long as the NPK values are the same. You will only need a drop or two each time you change the water.
Good luck plant seems sick..
There are several plants that go by this name. If you can include its proper name, then I can be of more assistance.
In the meantime, I will include an article for the most common plant with this name: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/lucky-bamboo/lucky-bamboo-rotting.htm
The bottom leaves are always going yellow and the water yucky
I see that it is in water and nothing else. It is lacking fertilizer. Growing in nothing but water will require a few drops of liquid fertilizer with each water change each week, though they can go longer between than that. Leaving stagnant water for much longer than a month will lead to infections as well.

I have had it along time. It was leaning so I put a stake to hold it up. I decided to move the pot of 3 plants. When I did it fell over when I tried to pick it up the brown stock didn't have any substance other a few brown stems. The top of the plant has the most beautiful green leaves. Can I save it?

My bamboo plant is in a crystal vase with quarter size clean rocks bought from a store. It has always looked gaunt and a very pale green color to her leaves also very spindly. She is approximately 4 years young and need advice badly !!

We are just getting started and are trying to "save" a Lucky Bamboo that has brown stalks, only a few green leaves, and probably was over watered.
If it has sustained an infection from overwatering, then it might not recover.
You can make an attempt with a fungicide. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
