I inherited this Lucky Bamboo from my sister a few months back. I'm not sure how well it was taken care of when she had it, but I'm trying very hard. How do I know when or if it needs to be re-potted?

Refresh water every week, take off any bad leaves and if it’s in soil, my opinion would be to repot in water so you don’t have to fuss over it too much at all. I love these because they are easier than others to care for especially if they’re in water (Diluted or bottled water). I personally would use water also just so you can check the roots and how much they’ve grown around the pebbles easier. Good luck! They are so pretty!🍀🪴🤞🏼I had to propagate mine since the old owners of my house passed it to me but it already had started root rot🥺 I’m hoping to start a new family of bamboo🥰🪴🍀🤞🏼
These are the hardiest plants ever. I am literally trying to kill mine and it will not die. I have not watered it in months. So don’t worry, it’s just fine in that same container. It doesn’t need much water or soil. I’m actually not totally sure how to take of it well, but you can be sure not much will kill it. LOL
I would repot if they are root bound.
It is common for lucky bamboo to become quite root-bound. Don't fear, you can gently pull apart its roots as much as you can without damaging them. Even if the root system stays entangled, it should not cause you concern. The roots will continue to grow outwards once they have been planted in a pot with more space.
It actually looks really good.
Thanks everyone! It's not in soil, just some small pebbles and water and has been SUPER easy to care for. Before I got this app to remind me to water my plants, if I missed watering for a week it still just did it's thing and kept looking beautiful! It's never given me a problem at all!!!
I have mine in a glass type of vase with rocks and water. You don’t need to worry about watering it then
