Yellowing bamboo

So, I don’t have much experience with bamboo and I’m a little worried about this guy. It’s been slowly yellowing for a little bit, and I’m not sure if it’s maybe because of the cold or too much sun. I was also wondering if it needs to be repotted, seeing as the roots are starting to peep out from the rocks. Any suggestions? #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantTherapy #PlantMoms

Hi, definitely put it in bigger pot. How often are you changing the water? Repot , wash and clean the rocks and replenish with fresh water. I have mine in glass vases, I clean the vases and change the water every 7 to 10 days. Remove the yellow leaves from plant also. If it continues to yellow try propagating some of the green stalks to grow new plants. Hope this helps
@Aaa77 Thank you so much!! I’ll definitely be taking some time to get this one right :)
I agree with @Aaa77 I've had my bamboo in gravel and water for years. I would hoverer, listen that you're around the bamboo, it looks like it's cutting into those stems.
