What do you use for the ‘soil’ of a lucky Bamboo?
When I bought mine, it came in just an open bowl-like-pot filled with water. Just flicking through images and I’ve noticed that many people use stones in the water. Any idea why this is beneficial and do I need to add small stones to mine? #LuckyBamboo #Dracaena

Soil. Lucky bamboo can be grown in well-drained, rich potting soil. The soil should be kept moist, but not soaking. Additionally, it can thrive well when housed in pebbles or simply a vase filled with water, as long as it has at least an inch of standing water at all times.
I think it’s more for  aesthetic. You can get stones to put in the water
@PlantyPlanter oh thank you🤣
You could use these
Thank you for the help, I’ll look into both options. I’m swaying more towards keeping it in water as it’s just a bit more interesting than putting another plant in soil. Thankyou for the help!!
I grow mine in my fish tank. They do well and grow out of the top.
