Bamboo

I bought some lucky bamboo to put in my new betta bowl. I've been keeping it in a cup of water until I setup the bowl. The guy at the store said you really don't have to do anything, but it seems that the bottom of the bamboo, well all of the straight part under the curl is turning yellow and shriveling. It was a lush green when I bought it. Is there something I can put in the water to help the bamboo that won't harm a betta? Any suggestions would be appreciated

I've read regular tap water is bad because of chemicals so I put my fish's water conditioner in it to see if that does anything haha

Make sure it is not in too much light, because that killed mine.

Is your bamboo fully submerged in water? Because bamboo can not live like that, Petco and other fish stores sell it as a aquarium plant when it really is not.

It still could be in too much water =\ sorry to say. I think that is usually why you have to plant them in rocks so they only absorb as much as they need and aren't bombarded by the water.
