Keeping this in consideration, can you grow bamboo in Arizona desert?

Yes, bamboo grows in the desert. However it puts out a lot of runners that can be hard to control. Look for a clumping variety that reduces runners.

Similarly, does bamboo grow a lot of water? Bamboo likes a lot of water, but it also needs a well-drained soil. While it is necessary to saturate the entire planting area when growing running bamboo plants, you can restrict watering for clumping types to the area around the base (or "clump") of the plant.
