Bamboo floor installation (top nailing question)

I am about to install new bamboo floors in my house. I have installed oak and pine before, but never bamboo. I have read all the materials, and they suggest that there is no difference. But there was one issue that was never addressed. In the past when face nailing, I would drive the nail just below the surface line and fill in the gap with a matching color wood fill. The spot would be virtually invisible once the floors were sanded and finished. I have not seen any fill that would work with bamboo floors. Maybe that is because it is a grass? What do you recommend I do to make the nails as invisible as possible.

Thanks for your help
