Bucephalandra sp. "Mini Needle Leaf" is one of the smallest Bucephalandra forms. It is propagated by tissue culture. We do not have exact information about its origin and species identity, but apparently it is comparable with Bucephalandra sp. "Sekadau 1".
This particularly nice, small epiphyte has elongate, middle to dark green, somewhat wavy leaflets on a creeping to ascending rhizome. It grows very slowly and is especially suited for the creation of small-scale, delicate aquascapes, especially in nano tanks.
As well as other Bucephalandra forms, it is recommendable to attach "Mini Needle Leaf" on the hardscape, but it also does well when it is fixed to the ground (don't bury the rhizome!) where the roots will grow into the ground. It is an easy plant, however it looks best with medium lighting, good water current and constant CO2 and nutrient supply.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
Dennerle has been operating in Vinnigen since its foundation in 1966 and, after more than 50 years of company history, the building blocks Dennerle relies on is experience. The philosophy behind Dennerle is to create a small and tangible, intact piece of nature, in harmony with the natural environment. That is why sustainability is a company-wide concept and is implemented at every possible point. In order to achieve an ecologically balanced aquarium, Dennerle relies on a system that is based on 5 pillars. Animals, plants, water, substrate and lighting. Dennerle offers the optimum equipment to bring this complex, but not complicated system into harmony.

Id have loved a larger amount of buce but it was still good. People get angry over the leaf melt but thats to be expected with in-vitro. (read more)
Id have loved a larger amount of buce but it was still good. People get angry over the leaf melt but thats to be expected with in-vitro. The plant is going from emersed to submerged, the old growth cant survive under water so it grows new underwater leafs! Give them time
I bought 2 Vitro XL portions of the plant and in 3 weeks every single one of them melted beyond recognition. (read more)
I bought 2 Vitro XL portions of the plant and in 3 weeks every single one of them melted beyond recognition. The rhizomes are not mushy yet so I still have some hope, but frankly they are so ugly Im considering removing them altogether. Unfortunate, because when alive the plant is so beautiful! The portion was super generous too with so many leaves!
