Why is my lucky bamboo spiral turning yellow

It grows on the window sill in the bathroom. It doesn't get direct sunlight on it.and just gets tap water.... A few of the leaves are going yellow too

Hi Coralee,

Lucky bamboo normally does quite well in a bathroom out of direct sunlight. Change the water every 7-10 days and occasionally add one quarter strength liquid fertiliser (Yates Thrive All Purpose Soluble Plant Food)) which is available from most nurseries and garden centres. Ensure the leaves are sprayed every 6 months or so with water to remove any excess dust. If your tap water is high in chlorine place some water in a jug overnight before using it on the bamboo.
