Planted in pot or pebbles. I put inside pot w/o holes and filled with water. It grew well, but now leaves turning yellow, and I need to clean pebbles and transplant in larger container.

Lucky Bamboo is actually a member of the dracaena family ( corn plants, marginata, etc). It's very adaptable, but not meant to grow in water permanently. Take it out of the water and stones, gently, and put it into a pot no more than 2" in diam bigger than the root ball. Plant in fast-draining soil (cactus soil) as you would any other plant (drainage holes in the pot, etc.etc). Keep it slightly moist in the beginning, because it has water roots, and gradually reduce the soil moisture until you are letting the soil get almost dry between waterings; this could take up to 6 months. Keep it in moderate light, fertilize no more than twice a year.
