"Hi. It depends if it’s solid or engineered, engineered can be floated or glued down. If it’s solid it must be glued down like any other solid floor and must be glued or fixed to the subfloor. Bamboo is quite solid/hard wood but expands and contracts quite a lot. So I would glue down. Hope that helps."
