This attractive Bucephalandra form is new in the range of Tropica company, labeled as 'Red'. Its exact origin and species identity are unknown to us. It resembles i.a. several Bucephalandras that are said to come from the Lamandau region in Kalimantan. All Bucephalandra species are endemic on the island of Borneo, occurring on rock along streams, adapted to flooding with strong water current.
The elliptic leaves of Bucephalandra sp. 'Red' have an about 5 mm long stalk and a 2,5-3 cm long, 1,2 cm broad blade. The leaf edge is wavy, the tip blunt and roundish. Especially the young submerged leaves show nice reddish colours. The plant gets about 4 cm tall.
Our plant is produced at the nursery Tropica, not collected from the nature for the trade.
In general, Bucephalandra species grow on rock or wood, attached by their roots. They can also be fastened to the ground as long as the rhizome is not buried, otherwise it may rot. Bucephalandras do best with medium lighting, regular CO2 and nutrient supply via the water column and good water current. The propagation is easily done by cuttings of the shoots.
This relatively small Bucephalandra is highly recommended for the hardscape. It looks best in a bigger stand. Its rather dark colours contrast well with freshly green mosses.
Aquatic plants originating from the Danish aquatic plant nursery Tropica differ from those from other nurseries by their excellent quality. Extremely high standards and a very varied range of plants make setting up an aquarium or aquascape a very pleasant experience. Healthy water plants are an essential basis for an aquarium that's practically free from algae.
Tropica's well-planned product range is constantly enriched with new innovative aquatic plants. For aquascapers and aquatic plant enthusiasts, plants by Tropica are always a great choice.
