I have been told it will rot within 4 months completely submerged would have looked cool if it could work though

I will vouch that bamboo rots being completely submerged underwater. If you leave part of it out you may be fine. But 4 months is about right.

As others have said, it's not an aquatic plant, if you don't keep all of the leaves above water, they rot quickly. The entire plant rots but it takes a little longer. They make some really lovely artificial bamboo for tanks.

Some ivy is toxic. You're best off doing some web research on the specific plant you have in mind.
