I would love to attempt an aquascape(correct word?) like those two in my fluval. My question where would I get the bamboo? and doesnt a betta fish like caves? I noticed alot of this tanks don't have a place for it to hide as much...maybe in the plants though?

I was working on a zen theme for my 10 gallon I am working on but with all live aquatic plants. Unfortunately I do not have the best green thumb and all my plants are dying in that tank. However my other 10 gallon is like a jungle.
I have seen some discrepancy about placing real bamboo in tanks though. Some say it can cause problems with the water and will rot. Fake bamboo should be fine though. :)

Hmm..fake bamboo is doable but at the same time real bamboo would be a tad better. The only bamboo I come across ever is "lucky bamboo" and thats supposebly not even the real stuff lol and It would be awesome to start a low light tank for my future betta but I'm afraid Imma kill all my plants too

If you use real bamboo with the leaves on top, you need to make sure the leaves are out of the water I heard, so an open top tank (with a mounted light) would be good for this :)
