I love bamboos, I have 3 varieties in my garden. There are small varieties that they usually call lucky bamboo which you can put in a pot.

But as a bonsai? I dont think so because by definition alone, bonsai mean tree in a pot and bamboo as far as I know is a grass.

But you could use it as an accent plant - it complements just about everything. Cheers.

If he gave you "Lucky bamboo" it is not bamboo. It is Dracaena_braunii, a houseplant and not even closely related to bamboo -- which is a grass-like plant. Its greatest advantage is that it is hard to kill.
