The trading name "Fake Catherine" was given to small and very narrow-leaved Bucephalandra forms that resemble Bucephalandra catherineae. Partly they may be Bucephalandra belindae, but also other similar species such as the very small B. micrantha may hide behind this name. We could not yet determine our "Fake Catherine" to species. However, in our opinion it is one of the most beautiful Bucephalandra forms. Its leaves are a little broader than those of our Bucephalandra belindae strain, and it grows a little faster, too. The rhizome is rather densely branched and grows horizontally. The leaves show attractive brown-green tones.
As well as virtually all Bucephalandras, it is best fastened on rock or wood where it will attach itself by its roots. For its aquarium culture, medium lighting, constant CO2 and nutrient supply as well as good water current are beneficial. It is propagated by cuttings of the main and side shoots.
With its small size and low, creeping habit, Bucephalandra sp. "Fake Catherine" is a very interesting plant for the hardscape of delicate small-scale aquascapes.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.
Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.
When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.
