    If Lucky Bamboo is planted in soil, should there be a drainage hole in the pot?

    Yes, there should be. Check this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yQhV4AJ0io, the guy explained well the need for drainage.  🙂

    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?

    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!
