Description

"Aqua Artica" is a small, distinctive Bucephalandra form with dense leaf rosettes on the shoot tips. The leaves are dark olive green, narrowly spathulate with round tip and curved. Its exact origin and species identity are unknown to us, however the plant resembles the species Bucephalandra spathulifolia.

Bucephalandra species and forms are primarily epiphytes on rock or wood where they attach themselves by their roots. They can also be fixed to the bottom, however the rhizome must not be buried to avoid rotting. The plant will root on its own and benefit from the nutrients in the substrate. The growth is generally slow to very slow.
Bucephalandras cope with poor light conditions, however they develop their most beautiful look with medium lighting, good water current and constant nutrient and CO2 supply. They also tolerate strong lighting, sufficient CO2 and nutrient supply provided. The favourable temperature range is about 20 to 27°C.
We recommend to put Bucephalandras into already cycled aquariums. It is best to leave the plants in peace so they can grow. Sudden changes of parameters may lead to shedding of leaves, normally, however, the plants regrow slowly and produce new shoots on the rhizome. Bucephalandras are easily propagated by cutting terminal and side shoots that also promotes the ramification of the plant.

With its characteristic dark green leaf rosettes, Bucephalandra sp. "Aqua Artica" provides a nice accent as an epiphyte on the hardscape.

Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
