Lucky bamboo

Dear Ms. Clapp,

I have some lucky bamboos that live in water for a few years. Since the roots are now filling up the container, I’m wondering if I can trim them a little now.

Thank you so much,

Hien C.

Anne's response: Trimming the roots does help their performance but don’t trim off all the “new, white” roots. Remove the dark, shriveled roots; clean the container, replace the water in the container with fresh water. I add a drop of liquid fertilizer to 2 cups of water and use that solution to “repot” my Lucky Bamboo.
