The nursery Tropica produces several Bucephalandra forms under the name Bucephalandra sp. "Red". They have nice brown-red colours in common and resemble plants that are traded as "Lamandau", "Theia" and "Biblis". They are small to medium-sized, up to 5 cm high forms with elliptic to elongate, more or less wavy leaves. All Bucephalandra species are endemic on the island of Borneo, occurring on rock along streams, adapted to flooding with strong water current. Bucephalandra sp. "Red" is produced as tissue culture plant or potted plant in nurseries, 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.

The Bucephalandra forms, labeled as "Red", are highly recommended for the hardscape. They look best in a bigger stand. Their 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.
