Lucky Bamboo is a very hardy plant. If the roots of your bamboo look overcrowded or dense with long roots, it is time for a bamboo haircut! To give your bamboo the proper trimming, follow these three easy steps:
Step 1: Gently remove the lucky bamboo from the water and rocks. Give the bamboo a good rinse of water.
Step 2: Once the bamboo has been cleaned, with the use of a sharp clean scissor or garden shears you want to trim the roots of the bamboo. The trim should be no more than 1/3 of the length from the ends of the roots.
Step 3: After you have cut the roots of the bamboo, return the lucky bamboos back into the cleaned vase and secure in place with your rocks/marbles. Fill up the vase with a fresh batch of filtered water.
