    Bamboo is insane. You can practically watch it grow in good weather.

    My plant class teacher recommended the same tactic of F'Bob, to cut open the plant and treat the open wound with Roundup, and let it infiltrate the plant's systems.

    Likewise with the poison ivy. First put on the hazmat suit and rhino-hide gloves, them cut off the ends down to the new growth. Stick the open ends in a Round-up container, and hope the plant drinks it up like water.

    Keep us posted about whatever you try.
