As you can see from the photos, all the bamboo are healthy and beautiful, all have full leaves and roots. It's very easy to take care of Lucky Bamboo, just put roots in water, and keep them in door with room temperature, and stay away from direct sunlight. How to care for your LUCKY BAMBOO PLANT: LIGHT: Lucky Bamboo will do best with moderate levels of indirect light. Do not expose plant to direct sunlight. The direct sunlight is too strong for the plant and cause the leaves to warp and the leaves will turn brown. Lucky Bamboo should always be keep indoors. WATER: We highly recommend bottled water or filtered water. Tap water contains chlorine that will cause the tip of the leaves to turn brown. If you must use tap water, you can eliminated most of the chlorine and chemical by letting it sit 24 hours before adding it to the plant. To prevent the roots from drying, always keep the water level at least 1" high. Do not submerge the plants completely underneath the water. The top of the stalk much be expose to air so that it can breathe properly. Change the water every 14 days to prevent the roots from rotting. NUTRIENTS: Lucky bamboo do not require any nutrients or fertilizers. It can last for years with clean water. Plant food or fertilizer can help aid the health of Lucky Bamboo plants.
