Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we are going to talk about how to transplant lucky bamboo. Now lucky bamboo is actually a house plant. It is a dracaena. It is not even a bamboo. It grows more like a house plant so it will continue to grow and grow and grow and eventually it makes more stems and it will outgrow the pot that it is in. It likes to be root bound, that means it likes the small pot for the plant but over the years it will get larger and larger but you can tell it is getting stressed out so all you have to do is take it out of the container that it is in currently and put it in a container that is a little bit larger and trim up the roots or trim out any of the dead leaves and put it right back into a container with water or soil or just with some rocks and it will grow really well and you can transplant it pretty much any time of the year and because it is a house plant in colder climates the best time to transplant it is in the Spring or the Fall I have found and it will grow quickly again and even every little piece of root and bamboo stem will make a new plant so it is really easy to transplant your lucky bamboo and you can pretty much do it any time of the year.
