When cutting an offshoot of lucky bamboo, is it necessary afterwards to cut the main stalk and seal it with wax? Will the main stalk continue to grow offshoots if you don't?

Another question: how often should I water the main lucky bamboo plant and how often should I water the cutting? Do I mist or pour the water?

It is not necessary to seal the cut main stem. Whether or not the main stem puts out new growth is not affected by whether or not you seal the end.

Is your Lucky Bamboo growing in water? if so, just maintain the water level so the roots are always covered by water. Root the cutting in water and make sure the lower node is in water at all times. Pour, not mist.
