Sos. I dont know whats wrong with my bamboo. I have it in water only.
I cut it in two seeing as it was too long, maybe that was a mistake? How to a stop it from dying?? #LuckyBamboo #helpneeded

Once the stalk is turning yellow, it will not recover. You will have to cut the yellow section off in order to save the remaining part of the healthy stalk. A stalk can be turning yellow from the top down or from the bottom up.

I used to have a lucky bamboo but it ended up dying on me. Itโ€™s turned yellow and then brown. It was not salvageable.

Here is a YouTube link that might be helpful:
Mine turned yellow when I needed to 1. Put less water in its dish. 2. Changed out the rocks I had it set on top of.
Mine also started getting little blisters on the stem. Once I changed those things the blisters browned and the yellowing stopped spreading but has not gone away. This was a few weeks ago. If kristy is correct then I need to lob off the top of mine. ๐Ÿฅบ

I had similar trouble with my Bamboo thatโ€™s in water. I started regularly changing the water and I purchased bottled water. I or you can use rain water. I donโ€™t think this plant likes the minerals, chlorine, sodium (and etc.), in the water. Be careful of bottled water with additives in them. I hope this help.
I use distilled water. Mine is in water and rocks . I was told by someone (don't remember who) not to put water higher than what will cover the roots because the plant doesn't like it. I haven't had mine very long but so far she's fine. Good luck! I'm a newbie but @KikiGoldblatt gives great advice.๐Ÿ˜Š
