How To Revive a Unhealthy Lucky Bamboo

Avoid Overwatering and Underwatering

Lucky bamboo has two breeding methods, one is soil culture, the other is water culture. Lucky bamboo is relatively simple. As long as it is given enough water and keeps the soil slightly moist, it can grow vigorously. The water level of aquatic Fugui bamboo is preferably about 15cm. If the water level is too deep, it is easy to rot, resulting in unhealthy lucky bamboo. If we use tap water, we'd better dry it for 2 days.
During the growth period of lucky bamboos, we can water lucky bamboos once when the basin soil is dry in 2 to 5 days according to the seasonal climate change, so as to keep the basin soil slightly wet without waterlogging. The basin soil is easy to grow in vain if it is too wet, and the leaves are easy to dry and sharp if it is too dry. We should often spray water on the leaf surface to increase the air humidity in the small environment and make use of its growth to avoid unhealthy lucky bamboos.

Fertilize One to Two Times Per Year

Too much fertilizer, too thick fertilizer or the use of non decomposed fertilizer will cause fertilizer damage in lucky bamboo soil. If lucky bamboo's rhizome is lucky not to rot due to its maturity, the growing leaves will also become unsmooth and inactive. At this time, we need to add water to dilute fertilizer. If the fertilizer damage is too serious, we can only change soil and basin to replant lucky bamboo. We can fertilize lucky bamboo one to two times per year.

Prune Dying or Dead Leaves and Stems

In addition to planting problems, lucky bamboo itself may also cause leaf wilting. If the breeding conditions meet the standard and the nutrients are very sufficient, the branches and leaves will grow madly. The breeding space is limited, and the crowded leaves do not have a transparent environment, so the unhealthy lucky bamboo is prone to wilting. Therefore, we pay attention to pruning and removing miscellaneous leaves during the treatment of unhealthy lucky bamboo.

Provide Indirect Light

Lucky bamboo likes indirect light. The long-term shade environment will make lucky bamboo's leaves wilt. The leaves of lucky bamboo are wilted and yellowing due to direct exposure to too strong light. The treatment methods of leaf wilting caused by different light intensity are also different. The reason for strong light is shading and cooling, waiting for recovery. If the light is insufficient, replenish the light as soon as possible, so that lucky bamboo leaves can complete photosynthesis.

Pay Attention to Ventilation

The ventilation condition of lucky bamboo is also a maintenance point that we can easily forget. Especially in the extremely hot environment with high temperature in summer, the air permeability is still very poor, and the leaves of lucky bamboo will wilt if they can't stand such an environment. It is very simple to solve the problem of withered leaves of unhealthy lucky bamboo caused by poor ventilation. We should immediately improve the ventilation environment and scrub the leaves with clean water to cool down.
