: Hi, for all of you that want to know how to care for your Bamboo Plant, here it is.
: #1. Never put the plant in direct sunlight (causes it to die fast)
: #2. Never put the plant in soil, just water, maybe some rocks, or even aquarium gravel(soil causes bacteria and fungus)
: #3. Keep it fairly warm around 70 -80 degrees
: #4. Change water once a week
: #5. Use fairly warm water when you replace the old
: #6. Never CUT the plant. It WILL die!!
: #7. Never cut the leaves, if you need to get rid of soem leaves, break them off.
: I hope this helps! :-)

This is true for Lucky Bamboo (a dracena I think) its not true for true bamboo's, which need soil-sun-containment
