@WingedSamurai But they die faster in water. It will only live for about
2-3 years in water, while in soil the plant can thrive for decades.

My lucky bamboo did Just Fine in rocks and water for 6 years. I also
discovered that it did much better with distilled water as well.

You keep saying its a house plant, and yet you put it outside and half
killed the poor thing 🙁 Mine has been living happily with me for many
years now, planted in rocks not soil. Watered always.

I have 2 lucky bamboo plants I bought that I put at my workplace. Both of
the lucky bamboo plants were bought more than 2 years ago, & they are still
healthy & tall. The lucky bamboo plants are fine indoors. I don’t put them
against the window. I put them on top of filing cabinet called the Panda &
Bamboo plant corner. I have a panda sculpture attached to a big tree-like
stump on that filing cabinet that is sitting on artificial green astroturf
& the 2 lucky bamboo plants are on (cont.)

each side of the panda sculpture. I can be good when it comes to taking
care of indoor plants. I have many purple shamrock plants that my
co-workers & I have helped sprout into many indoor pots & we give the
purple shamrock plants to friends, family, & a few clients who really want
one badly. At my workplace, we get lots of compliments on the purple
shamrock & lucky bamboos. One time, this guy asked if he could buy a plant
I helped take care of out of the many at my workplace for his (cont.)

girlfriend for Valentine’s Day. 😀 My workplace is NOT even a greenhouse
or flower place. But we receive many compliments each time kids & adults
arrive at my workplace. It’s like stress relief for people to gaze & look
at our plants & flowers. If I had a side job, I’d probably be good at
running a flower & plant shop or being a party planner, decorator, or
personal shopper. Like somebody else said, LuckyBambooExpert has great
videos on how to properly grow & maintain lucky bamboo’s health.

I just found that out. Afriend brought some by for me to plant sit. I left
them on the front porch out of direct sunlight thinking it would be a fine
a fine spot. 4 days later they started yellowing. They were NOT HAPPY. I
thought that I had ruined them. Nice to know that they will revive. 🙂
