Is it better to keep lucky bamboo plants in water, or do ...

As far as I know water. I’ve never seen one in soil. My sister stole mine years ago and I never replaced it. There are lots of people here who must have one and I’m sure they will help you. Good luck and nice to meet you. πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ₯°πŸ€ͺ🌱
soil apparently is best if you want it to live longer and don't want to worry about water you're giving it.
I’ve never had any long lasting luck in just water and from what I’ve seen online, no one really has. You want a well draining soil that retains water well. It sounds like a little backwards but there are some good mixes out there! I’ve also seen people use vases of water and leca!
I have one in soil and I was overwatering it and it turned yellow. I’m hoping it rebounds now that I’m letting it dry out. Might drill a hole in the bottom of the pot.
I have one I’ve had in water for the last 3 years and it seems to love it , it’s taller and even has babies
She been in water
Wow! Thank you for the help and for the post showing the beautiful plants grown in water!! I'm going with that option! I had some, years ago, that I put in soil and some in water ~ none of them survived for a long time. Want to do better this time! Appreciate the help!
@Crissnell42 I’ve never seen such a large lucky bamboo. It’s beautiful!πŸ’•πŸ₯°πŸŒ±πŸ€ͺ❀️
@SportyWhiskfern were those new babies in the bottom ?
@jhays let us know how it’s doing. πŸ€ͺ❀️πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ’•
@Crissnell42 yes they are so cute. So they have sprouted up from the bottom ? And you just have them in water. They are beautiful! Do you give them fertilizer in their water ?πŸ₯°πŸ€ͺπŸ’•β€οΈπŸŒ±
