Hello--

My beautiful Dendrocalamus Minor Amoenus--Ghost Bamboo--was swamped with salt water due to the abnormally high surge caused by the hurricane earlier this week. I have been watering generously every day, but it's very depressing.

Any chance this will make it?

PS-- Is it possible this is wind damage and not the result of salt inundation? The lower leaves (protected from wind by other foliage) are still mostly green.

Howdy, I have no experience with salt issues, I can imagine all that one can do is water the area like mad, perhaps there is something that the salt will bond with you could disperse

I suppose it could be wind as well or a combo, in either case I'd water liberally.
