My lucky bamboo spiral is turning yellow. It's travelling down the stalk from the top.. why!! :-(

It grows on the window sill in the bathroom. It doesn't get direct sunlight on it.and just gets tap water....

Answer: 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 some liquid fertiliser (Lucky Bamboo fertiliser) 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.
