Hi all,

I recently moved and unfortunately my lucky bamboo was not packed very well and in transit all the leaves from one of the stalks were stripped. It has been 3 months now and I've been hoping that there would be some re-growth but there's been nothing. The stalk remains green and healthy looking but there are no leaves at all growing out of it. Is there anything I can do to promote re-growth or is this a lost cause. I currently have it planted in soil in a clay pot and the other 2 stalks are doing quite well besides the fact it gets a little more direct sunlight than it requires.

Thanks

you can cut the piece and it should start new growth - roots as well as new leaves.

just make sure there is at least one node (ring) on each piece. the new leaves will grow from the nodes.

also, put a little bit of wax on the top cut so that it will be protected from water splashing on it. just use a lit candle and let a few drops of melted wax drip onto the top cut.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. There is still a growth coming out the side of the main stalk but it's really just a nub with no leaves at all. Do you mean I should cut this off or cut the whole top of the main stalk off and a new growth will come out the side? Thanks for your help.

you can cut the stalk in half and then put the piece without any roots (the top part of the original stalk) into water and it should root within a couple of weeks...

the piece that already has roots on it (the bottom part of the original stalk) should start sprouting new leaves. put a bit of wax on the top part of this piece - to seal the cut.
