Lucky Bamboo Stem Cutting Rooted:)
I did an experiment and just wanted to see if it would work. My Lucky Bamboo is going on two years old, I have her in a beautiful Chinese porcelain pot filled with water. I have three stalks and they have become pretty tall. I wanted to cut it down some and give it a different design within the vase now that I have enough plant to do decorate with, and also wanted to see if the stem would root after I cut. So I cut it in between the nodes and placed it right back in the vase. After a month it rooted. Now my vase where the stalks are looks really fuller. I am glad. I was a little hesitant because from what I read they said to propogate the plant you would have to cut the stalk in half and root the stalk. I figured I would take the chance and try rooting it from the stem that I cut off since it is a plant after all:) I also put in a very little bit of superthrive in the water. I don't know if that helped it but I figured it would need a little boost of energy.
Just wanted to share that it is possible to root this plant by the stem and not just by the stalk itself. A lot of people stated that the stem would turn to mush if you tried to root it. I'm glad I took the chance.
