Okay now this may be a bit of a strange question, but has anyone ever trimmed back their “lucky bamboo” plants before?
Although I can grow just about anything in the garden me and house plants do not have a good relationship. I forget to water them and in turn they choose to die. I bought a lucky bamboo plant a few years ago and the sucker has just taken off. I usually end up killing them with in the first 6 months so I am quite happy that this one is indeed lucky. However, the problem is that it is getting so tall and I am not sure if you can trim back the leaves or not. I looked online and there is a lot of information on transplanting the plant as a whole as well as how to transplant stalks you removed. However, I couldn’t really find anything on cutting back the leaves. I am not sure if I trim all the way down to the stalk if anything will grow back or not. I don’t want to kill my lucky little plant so if anyone has successfully given this a try let me know.
In other news....there is still a lot of snow. I went for a walk around the front of the yard last night and I would say that there is a good 7 to 8cm of snow out there. I think a lot of it blew in like usual, but it was nothing compared to the 15-25cm they were calling for by mid afternoon. Of course you always hope that the first snow goes away in a few days, however I do not see that happened this year. The temperatures for the rest of the week are around -2C daytime and -10C at night. SO unless we get a nice warm front...winter is here to stay
