I don't know about toxicity issues with lucky bamboo, but I'm glad you have the best interests of the fish at heart. The more surface area of the water that is exposed to air, the better. Don't forget to change about 30% of the water twice a week, since you will have no filtration. Use a dechlorinator unless you are on a well. Try to keep the temperature stable and as warm as you can. Bettas really like their water at around 80 deg., although they can manage fine at slightly lower temps. Lots of people keep them at room temp. Just make sure the room isn't too cool. Hikari betta bio gold is, IMHO, the best betta food. My Bert was a "rescue" too, and he looked pretty poorly when I got him. But a comfortable environment and bio-gold really did the trick. (Bert is in a heated, filtered 10-gal. tank)
Betta fish and bamboo plants are both very attractive. Pamela N Red tells how to successfully combine the two in a lovely environment.

Many online retailers will sell you larger quantities of Lucky Bamboo, in case you were wanting to scale your Betta Fish and Bamboo hobby up a notch. The thing to watch for is if the supplier is able to provide a Phyto Certificate for the plants they're selling. Most reputable tropical plant suppliers will have this documentation ready.

Scientifically know as Dracaena sanderiana, the more commonly known Lucky Bamboo plant is of the species Dracaena. They are also known as Ribbon Dracaena, Belgian Evergreen or sometimes Ribbon Plant. Lucky Bamboo is the common term in the tropical and fresh water fish communities and they're a great centerpiece to a Betta Fish Aquarium.It sometimes seems that Bettas are more at peace when they have comfortable, organic surroundings to immerse themselves in. The nooks and crannies that lucky bamboo creates also add to the ambiance of the fish environment.Bettas just love swimming in and around the stems that are submerged just under the water of their Betta Fish bowl. Just the right Lucky Bamboo plant can create a visual masterpiece of elegant glass, tropical plants, and live fish that will make any area of the room they're placed even more visually appealing.A great candidate for a rectangular Betta Fish Aquarium, this single, one layer set of bamboo has been placed quite well in a line, submerged in a traditional fish aquarium.This great ensamble of 38 Lucky Bamboo stalks is a great starter to your Betta Fish and Bamboo hobby. Great tropical plants with smart wrapping.This is a great example of plants and animals living together in harmony. I got the idea for this Betta Fish tank at Craft Warehouse. I used a Bamboo plant for this tank. I used a beautiful case with hearts around it as my fish tank. I cut a hole in the bottom of a 5" clear plant saucer, to put the roots of the Bamboo plant through. I layered clear marbles and red skittles ( NOT the candy ones) to decorate the bottom of the vase. I added water and a red and blue Betta Fish. I put an air…interesting and informative now you got me thinking about starting the bambo for my betta, and to think I just was looking for betta fish stories.Cool betta terrarium idea: take a mason jar and add river stones, an ornamental bamboo plant, and a Betta. Plant benefits from fish waste and co2, fish benefits from plant producing oxygen and using excess waste keeping the water cleaner longer. (Snails help too)
