Just moved into a new house, looking forward to making the garden nice and pretty. I'll be found in the reduced section rescuing plants :)

@greenfinger14 and @carolgs this is the lucky bamboo i rescued a couple of months ago, you both thought it would pick up and it has! Most if it anyway a few bits died but its looking so much better! Thankyou

Looks so much better than than when you got it, I've never had one of these but I'm guessing light and water does the trick and maybe diluted foliar feed very occasionally, @vickster

Just bought this from Lidl, it's a bit yellow is it past saving? Was totally dry I've given it some water but don't know much about care for them?

Bamboo is very resilient if it's got new shoots it shud be ok 👍 @vickster and it defo likes water 😊

The yellowing is probably from low light levels nothing a bit of windowsill bathing won't fix @vickster

Noticed these plants don’t like tap water too much, yellowish leaves

Hi @Andrew101 it's doing amazing now grown loads nice and green too! I didn't know about tap water I only use tap I must admit. I got it from Lidl it hadn't been watered or anything which I think is why it was so yellow
