If Lucky Bamboo is planted in soil, should there be a drainage hole in the pot?October 28, 2020 at 3:19 pm ReplylionnaPrivate messageGreenhorn
Yes, there should be. Check this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yQhV4AJ0io, the guy explained well the need for drainage. 🙂November 1, 2020 at 4:01 pm ReplybillyboberoosPrivate messageGreenhorn
yes you should definitely have a drainage hole. I had the same question because my lucky bamboo had been in a vase with water for over a year. I thought that just adding soil wasn’t going to hurt, but actually the soil started rotting and the leaves began to turn yellow. I was really close to losing my stems but potting it like another normal plant with drainage and all helped save it. I guess it’s not really the water itself that’s the problem, but more the rest of the soil that isn’t really adapted. I don’t know if in the wild this bamboo can survive in marshes with water all around it for a long time?November 2, 2020 at 3:11 am ReplyplantitaPrivate messageGreenhorn
I didn’t know lucky bamboo could be planted in the soil and could even thrive more. I’ve never seen one in my area. I would like to try it. Thanks for the tips!
