"Theia Compact" is a relatively small, compact Bucephalandra form with impressive coloration. 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.
The growth habit of this Bucephalandra resembles much that of "Biblis Green", apart from its colour. The rhizome branches intensely and grows rather upright under water, creating a dense bushy habit. The leaves are to about 3 cm long, broadly spathulate, obovate to oblanceolate, with short stalk. The leaf edge is slightly wavy, the tip is blunt. The upper sides of the leaves show deeply dark brown-red to brown-green tones, partly with bluish shimmer. to medium green tones. Under water many silvery spots (the stomata) are visible on the upper sides of the leaves.
Bucephalandra sp. "Theia Compact" is not demanding, however it looks best with moderate lighting, good CO2 and nutrient supply and water current. The growth is very slow. This 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 cuttings of the stem tips and branches.
With its pleasant, bushy look and very dark colours, this Bucephalandra is interesting for the planting of the hardscape. Larger stands with many heads, grown undisturbed for a longer period, are particularly beautiful.
Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.
Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.
When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.
