Bucephalandra motleyana "braun/rot - Narrow" was originally imported from the area around Serimbu, West Kalimantan, into the Netherlands, under the name Bucephalandra motleyana. It has been in cultivation since around 2004. B. motleyana "braun/rot - Narrow" differs from B. motleyana "braun/rot" by longer, more flexible leaves and a looser growth habit. It has a creeping rhizome. Young leaves are of a light brownish red to apricot colour, older leaves are slightly shiny and dark green to brown. This Bucephalandra variant grows comparatively fast. Under water it often flowers, forming a small pale pink spathe.
Like other Bucephalandra variants, "braun/rot - Narrow" can either be used as epiphytic plant for hardscape or be fixed on the substrate, e.g. with a small rock or a planting needle. Do not cover the rhizome, as it might rot. The roots will find their way into the substrate.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
