I've decided to cut it from bamboo stock 3 weeks ago. Its been in the water since then. I noticed that its been curling. I've been replacing the water once a week

hm, they are pretty tough and at least is isn't yellowing. Maybe trim the stem end a little for a fresh end? Have at least one or two nodes under water, and I'm pretty sure it'll root.

That kind of leaf curl can happen if plant is trying to expose more surface area to dim/weak light.
