Black Spots on Lucky Bamboo – What to Do?

On the whole, the black spots are not a problem. However, if the bamboo is quite young and growing well, it is recommended that you let the bamboo go through the ‘grey’ stage for a while, and then water it to encourage the bamboo to grow out of the black spots.

Black Spot

Leaves with holes – As the leaves of the bamboo are grown, the holes become larger and larger, until eventually the bamboo is left with large holes on its leaves. This is not a problem, but if the holes are big, the bamboo is too weak to withstand the weather.

Leaves are not green – As the bamboo grows, the leaves are not always green. The leaves may be green, but sometimes they may be yellow or white. It is not a problem, as long as the bamboo is growing well.

Tendrils are not curled – The tendrils of the bamboo are usually curled. However, this is not a problem. The tendrils should be straight, so that they can cling to the bamboo to keep the bamboo in place.

The bamboo is getting too big – If the bamboo is growing too big, it is not recommended that you let it grow too big. If you do not let the bamboo grow, then it will die.

If you let the bamboo grow too big, then you have to cut down the bamboo to a manageable size. You notice that the bamboo has been growing a lot lately – If you notice that the bamboo has grown a lot recently, and you have not watered it, then this is a sign that the bamboo is probably not getting enough water.

Bamboo grows best when it is at least 10 feet tall – If you are growing the bamboo yourself, you should not let the bamboo grow taller than 10 feet. The bamboo should only grow for a few years before you harvest it.
