I have read that this plant does not like fluoridated water and I've have better luck keeping mine alive after switching from tap water. I use rain water or condensate from the air conditioner.

I have one sitting on my kitchen counter that has been there at least ten years. I never have changed the water and use tap water in the container. I have cut off jillions of cuttings and given them to people after they root but still keep the same old plant because it has been faithful to me. LOL
Since I didn't know how to care for the plant apparently it has been lucky...Hence...LUCKY BAMBOO!

I have had one of these plants for about 3 years now. It came to me as a gift at about 8" tall and was planted in soil in a small slender pot with no drain hole. I water it sparingly because of the lack of drainage. I transplanted it after about 2 years as it was getting quite tall. It is presently about 4 feet tall. I am wondering how big it may get. It has many shoots and appears to be very healthy. I will need to transplant it soon. I keep it near a window in my living room - bright but, no direct sun. Do you think it might survive outdoors in zone 9? I am quite intrigued with it and enjoy it tremendously.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have one that I rescued from a trash can. It is braided and I put it in a pot of dirt outside and it did quite well. However, I have no Idea of how to braid the long whips that come out of it and I was tired of them spoiling the braided look, so I just pinched them off about a month ago. So we'll see what happens now. The braid of the plant was what really interested me.

I am just guessing, but I think the braiding happens in the early growth time when the plant is placed on its side and the plant keeps trying to grow "up" - just a guess - or a sloppy memory!!!!
