The two top bamboo shoots are falling over a lot! Idk what to do ? Is it Becuase they are to long and heavy ? Should I cut them off? I'm scared to cut them and have it die. I just bought stuff to change it to a bigger pot . And I want to cut some to start a new plant but I do not know which ones I should cut . I'm scared to cut them and have them not grow back . Please anyone help me with these problems . Thank you

It will all be ok. As long at the main stem/truck stays in water it will grow new shoots. As for the ones you cut off, place them in water and within a few weeks you'll start seeing roots forming at the base.

PS: Lucky Bamboo is actually Dracaena sanderiana
