The elliptic leaves of Bucephalandra sp. ‘Red’ have an about 5 mm long stalk and a 2,5-3 cm long, 1,2 cm broad blade. The leaf edge is wavy, the tip blunt and roundish. Especially the young submerged leaves show nice reddish colours. The plant gets about 4 cm tall.
Our plant is produced at the nursery Tropica, not collected from the nature for the trade.
In general, Bucephalandra species grow on rock or wood, attached by their roots. They can also be fastened to the ground as long as the rhizome is not buried, otherwise it may rot. Bucephalandras do best with medium lighting, regular CO2 and nutrient supply via the water column and good water current. The propagation is easily done by cuttings of the shoots.
This relatively small Bucephalandra is highly recommended for the hardscape. It looks best in a bigger stand. Its rather dark colors contrast well with freshly green mosses.
