Bamboo is basically a giant grass in its growth habit. It spreads by the roots. It's not usually cut in terms of whacking back the top, but you can dig and divide it to make the plant smaller in girth. You can even divide the roots and replant just pieces of the roots and they will sprout into brand new plants. Hope this answers your question.
