Do I need to transplant the bamboos into a larger container?
Last Updated: 03/11/2011


The stalks of our lucky bamboo, Dracaena Sanderia, will not grow in height nor in diameter. The leaves however will continue to grow over time and can be trimmed. The roots will also grow as well. If they get too thick on the bottom of the vase, you can trim the roots (not the stalk) back to about one inch. There is no need to transplant them into a bigger container unless it is your choice to change the proportion of the overall design.
