"Biblis Red" is a relatively small Bucephalandra form with distinctly creeping growth habit and attractive dark colours. Its exact locality and species belonging is unknown to us, but as all Bucephalandras, it occurs on rock along streams in Borneo. We propagate this Bucephalandra form in our aquaria for more than one year.
The rhizomes are quite much ramified and grow horizontally. The elongate, nearly linear, arched leaves have a blunt tip, more or less wavy edge and are short stalked, they are about 3 cm long and 7 mm wide. The leaf margin is more or less wavy. The upper side of the leaves is slightly glossy and shows dark brown-green to brown-red colours. the leaves is dark olive green to brown-green, young leaves show a nice brown-red coloration.
As well as other Bucephalandra forms, it is best used as epiphyte on rock or wood, however it can also be fixed to the ground, provided that the rhizome is not buried. It is easily propagated by cuttings. Medium lighting, good CO2 and nutrient supply and water current are recommendable.
Bucephalandra sp. "Biblis Red" is a versatile plant for the hardscape, interesting for its low, prostrate growth and nice brown-red tones. It is also small enough to be used in nano aquariums.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
