4 months ago i planted a bamboo, all was well until last week when 90% of the leaves fell off but the side shoot still has green this normal ?

On plant Phyllostachys aurea



no that isnt normal.ive found bamboo to be one of the toughest plants i have.sounds like its bean poisand to me.i had to get rid of some bamboo and it took 2 years to kill it.i used loads of salt.coverd it away from the sun.didnt water it and hacked it right down.i ended up putting a sculpture over it.something very wrong im afraid
