We received this unusual Bucephalandra under the trading name "Poseidon". Its species identity and exact origin are unknown to us; as well as other Bucephalandra, it occurs on rock along fast-flowing rainforest streams on Borneo. We propagate this Bucephalandra in our aquaria for more than one year.
"Poseidon" is one of the bigger Bucephalandra forms with sturdy rhizome. It features very narrowly-lanceolate to almost linear, arched, leathery leaves with finely crispate edge and rather acute tip. The upper side of the leaves is green with a silvery greyish sheen, the lower side whiteish with brown-red midrib. The leaf stalks and rhizome tips are brown-red. The moderately branched rhizome is ascending when grown under water. Occasionally inflorescences with white, quite large spathe appear in submerged culture.

Bucephalandra sp. "Poseidon" is not demanding, however it looks best with moderate lighting, good CO2 and nutrient supply and water current. The growth is very slow. The plant is primarily an epiphyte for the hardscape but can also be fixed to the ground (the rhizome not buried!). It is easily propagated by cutting the stem tip and branches.

With its narrow, arching, rather light-coloured leaves, this quite big Bucephalandra has an elegant appearance and provides interesting possibilities for the hardscape planting, especially in larger tanks.
