Description

This plant is traded as Bucephalandra motleyana "Red" but certainly does not belong to the species B. motleyana. Therefore we label the plant provisionally B. sp. "Motleyana Red". It has elongate, ovate, dark olive green leaves with blueish shine. The rhizome is reddish. The exact origin and species identity of the plant is unknown to us, but all Bucephalandras originate from the island of Borneo where they grow as rheophytes (adapted to strong current) on rock in the flood zone of rainforest streams.

Bucephalandra species and forms are primarily epiphytes on rock or wood where they attach themselves by their roots. They can also be fixed to the bottom, however the rhizome must not be buried to avoid rotting. The plant will root on its own and benefit from the nutrients in the substrate. The growth is generally slow to very slow.
Bucephalandras cope with poor light conditions, however they develop their most beautiful look with medium lighting, good water current and constant nutrient and CO2 supply. They also tolerate strong lighting, sufficient CO2 and nutrient supply provided. The favourable temperature range is about 20 to 27°C.
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. Bucephalandras are easily propagated by cutting terminal and side shoots that also promotes the ramification of the plant.
