My sickly lucky bamboo is not recovering as I had hoped it would, despite my daily attentions to it. Most of the leaves turned yellow, so I cut them off, and one whole stalk turned yellow as well so I removed that, too. I change the water every two weeks and supplement with iron. I moved it into my study where there’s plenty of light. And still it’s a mere shadow of its former self and there is no indication that it is getting better.
There’s a fair amount of new growth starting at the base of the stalks, but it’s coming in at a snail’s pace, and I don’t know whether the new leaves will come out before the old leaves shrivel up and fall off. Every leaf is showing signs of distress at this point.
I hate watching this plant die before my eyes while I am powerless to stop it.
Has anyone else had a sick bamboo that you were able to save?
