How to Make Lucky Bamboo Grow Big?

  • Optimal Lighting
Lucky bamboo likes shade but not light, so it can be placed in a bright place during maintenance. Like in late autumn, places with scattered light are best for lucky Bamboo. We should not place lucky bamboos where the light is too weak or too strong. The light is too weak, the photosynthesis is blocked and the growth is slow. Too strong light can easily lead to yellowing of lucky bamboo's leaf tip or yellowing of old leaves. At the same time, the leaf color becomes lighter and the growth becomes slow. Many friends put lucky bamboos in places with plenty of direct light. They often don't grow for months, and the leaf tips are always dry.
