The the bamboo's lifespan is determined by how well you take care of it. They are pretty low maintenance, but they suck up water pretty quickly. Make sure to fill the pot full and check the water level every week at least. There is "green liquid" food for the plant just squeeze a few drops about every week or 2.

Also, keep the plant away from direct sunlight. A shaded area in the house/room is perfect.

Another thing, traditionally, you should have odd numbered bamboos, its like feng shui or luck (i.e. 3, 5, 9, 11 bamboo stalks are the more common pre-potted ones that I have seen at shops.)

Enjoy.
