Yeah, I read that it is semiaquatic, but mine for some odd reason, is doing well, lol.
It will do ok for a month or two. Lucky Bamboo grows in almost stagnant water in the jungles. The leafs, though, must be out of the water. It simply can not pull enough co2 from the water and the plant will begin to die. I suggest you get it out of there and just put it in a cup of water near a window(I have be growing Lucky Bamboo for about 7 years now).

She told me they never sold them before but the manager wanted to bring them in. But they always tell people to not buy them so they will get rid of them. I should have known when I saw all of them there still. I just had this gut feeling not to buy them and I didn't follow it. Next time I will, but they were all so nice and showed me what I could choose from.
I don't know how I would react to them saying that. "I wanted aquatic plants the FIRST time I was in here!" Oh and how much did you pay for the bamboo? You can but that stuff 14 inches high online for about $1.40 lol.

The plant label didn't say "Lucky Bamboo". It said "4" White Ribbon." When I came home and googled the scientific name, it simply began popping up with "Lucky Bamboo." Like even the plant it self didn't look like lucky bamboo. It had just the leaves, not the stem of lucky bamboo. But those little rip of tubes are $4.99 a piece. It looks like when I went to the store this weekend they had 1 or 2 missing .... but not to many. They even had bulbs you could plant in your tank and would grow...called "betta bulbs." Lol but my new plants are doing good, and I think my fish are a lot happier with the ones I did buy. I'm just glad I googled them before I took them home that night to plant them. I just had this gut feeling that day in the store "something is wrong."
