Bucephalandra sp. "Biblis" is a very decorative, small to medium sized, relatively vigorous Bucephalandra form. We have no information about its exact origin and species identity, but like all Bucephalandras it comes from the island of Borneo and colonises rocks in the flood zone of streams there. The plant resembles Bucephalandra sordidula. In the aquarium it forms a many-headed group of about 5 - 8 cm high and at least 14 cm wide by branching. The rhizome grows creeping to ascending, is about 2.5 mm thick, at least 4 cm long and branches little. The obovate-lanceolate leaves with conspicuously curled margins grow spreading and clustered like rosettes. The leaf blades are about 4 cm long and 9 mm wide, the petiole is 6 mm long. While the emersed leaves are very dark olive green to reddish brown, the submerged leaves often show splendid dark purple tones. Newly sprouting leaves stand out from the older, dark foliage with their light, brown-orange colouring. In addition, the leaves are covered with many silvery spots (the stomata) under water.
Our plant is propagated in nurseries and tissue culture laboratories; it is not commercialised from natural collections.


Like practically all Bucephalandras, this plant is best attached to rock or wood, where it attaches itself with its roots. You can also attach it to the substrate, but do not bury the rhizome because it could rot. The roots will then grow into the substrate by themselves and the plant can benefit from the nutrients in the substrate. The plant develops most beautifully in medium light intensity and with a constant supply of CO2 and nutrients. Growth is slow, but compared to some other Bucephalandras, "Biblis" grows relatively quickly under favourable conditions. Bucephalandras are propagated by cutting off side shoots or head shoots, which also promotes branching of the shoots.
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.

Bucephalandra sp. "Biblis" is versatile for planting on the hardscape. Over time, it forms a dense group. With its striking shapes and colours, it is an eye-catcher in any aquarium.
