|I have no photos to share, but Lucky bamboo can be easily propagated. A cut section of the stem will root in plain water. You can use the top 4-5 inches of the stem of your original plant. Simply cut through the stalk with a sharp knife 1?? below a node (leaf joint). Immerse the new cut section in water so that a leaf node is under water. Roots should begin to grow in 2-4 weeks. New leaf shoots (1 or 2 per stem) will eventually sprout from the joints that are above water.
