This attractive, broad-leaved form of Bucephalandra has been given its trade name after the location Nanga Pinoh in Kalimantan (Indonesian part of Borneo). Its exact species affiliation is still unclear. All Bucephalandra species are found on Borneo as flow-adapted plants (rheophytes) on rocks along streams.
Bucephalandra sp. "Nanga Pinoh" has more or less horizontally spread, quite large leaves attached to a creeping rhizome. Submerged, the leaves develop dark brown-red hues with a slight bluish shimmer. The shoot tips and upper rhizome sections are light reddish in color.

Bucephalandras are primarily epiphytes on rocks or wood. However, they can also be attached to the substrate, but the rhizome should not be buried as it might rot. The plant thrives best under medium lighting and with a constant supply of CO2 and nutrients. It can be propagated by separating side shoots or head shoots, which also promotes branching of the shoots.

With its rather large leaves, Bucephalandra sp. "Nanga Pinoh" works best on or in front of the hardscape in the midground of aquariums. Its creeping habit blends very well into an aquascape and looks particularly beautiful as a larger stand, neighboured with non too vigorously growing mosses and ferns.
