Can I form a new plant from a shoot? propagation.


           A Lucky Bamboo plant is almost always started from a cutting.  Use a sharp sterile knife and cut the shoot a little ways from the stalk. Take the shoot that has been cut off and put it in water and watch it form roots and develop a new plant.  Remember that lucky bamboo can live without roots, so it could take a long time. 

          You might also want to give it some fertilizer as this helps to stimulate growth. If you keep the new plant in a warm place the roots will start forming earlier.
