how do i get a bamboo plant out of a pot that its been growing in for a few years its completely pot bound?



Cut or saw the pot open if plastic. The rhizomes will have distorted the sides so the plant will be wedged in. If in a ceramic or clay pot then a length dunk in water should help to soften and lubricate for removal.

Soak thoroughly, as Ilex says, if in a ceramic pot, and then a couple of strong men, one to pull the pot away, the other to pull the topgrowth in the other direction...
