The problem with salt is, like you stated, it will kill all plants. There are other growing things within the bamboo that I don’t want to kill!
I live in zone 8 and have hot and humid summer conditions that makes the bamboo thrive. It never dies in the winter and, on the other side of the lot (not next to mine) it is already two stories tall. I swear you can actually watch this stuff grow!
I have, however, enjoyed having a ready source of plant stakes to help my over-zealous irises that are top heavy. ;)
