I’ve had this lucky bamboo plant for a little over 5 years now. Lately it’s been looking a lighter green and just slightly unhappy. I’ve done all my normal tricks and finally I decided to plant it in soil. However it stil looks the same. My question is, what do I do next? Should I propagate it? Plant it back in water? Trim the excess roots?

Welcome to the forum :) Bamboo likes a lot of water but with good drainage, so watering may well be an issue here. The soil looks dark and boggy, so try watering less. Low levels of nutrients can also cause leaves to turn yellow, what kind of soil did you use?
