Hello,

I have this set of 5 lucky bamboo shoots at our house.. and one of them started yellowing from the top recently. also, the same one doesn't have roots at the bottom (check image for reference). Please tell me what can I do to stop the yellowing! :/

Do any of them have roots? Without roots, it is simply a cut flower and cut flowers eventually die.

@daisyl hi.. yes the other 4 stalks have roots. This is the only one that doesn't. So you are saying this will die eventually? :/

Yes, it is dying.

Hopeully, you aren't superstitious about the number '4'.

Lucky Bamboo are Dracaena sanderiana cuttings rooting in water. Initially, they all had healthy roots to support the foliage. For some reason, the roots of one of the cuttings died and that stem is now finished and should be removed and discarded.

Let's hope that whatever caused that one cutting to die back will not occur with the others. There is nothing that you can do about it. Make sure you change the water regularly.
