Why is lucky bamboo stalk turning yellow from top?
I don’t use fertilizer. I don’t put them in direct sunlight, but I do keep them on this window .
I topped them to make more bamboo plants about a week ago. I used unscented white candle wax on both.

That yellow bit of stalk is definitely dying so I think you should remove that section quickly
before the whole stalk also rots away. Possibly some germ contaminated the plant before you sealed the top. I am no expert on lucky bamboo at all though. My own shoots disappointingly eventually all died after a few years, even though I used to boil the water (and cool it) before topping them up. I suspect I didn’t have them in an area that had enough natural light. If I tried again I would only use rainwater as I suspect boiling the water didn’t purify it enough for the plants. Good luck ... hope you have better luck with yours.
