Bucephalandra is a relatively new, rare plant into the hobby. Don't let that scare you, they are quite easy to grow. Bucephalandra is mostly from South East Asia. It is actually in danger of being wiped out, due to deforestation on the islands they are found on. Luckily, with their popularity gaining in the aquarium hobby, Bucephalandra will live on in our tanks. Bucephalandra is truly a beautiful plant that all has subtle differences to leaf shape, coloration, and size. They can be grown in both in aquariums andpaludraiums. There are hundreds ofbucevarieties that exist, and new ones are being discovered every day.
This plant grows similar to Anubias,as it grows along a rhizome and sends off leaves from it. They do best when tied or glued to rocks or driftwood and should not be planted in the substrate. They are extremely slow growers and take up too 2 years to fully convert in their "submerged" form. As the plant matures in your aquarium the new leaves will become more delicate and have a more intense color to them. To propagate just trim a portion of the rhizome with leaves off and place somewhere.
