"Velvet Tricolor" oder "Velvet 3 Color" is a small, narrow-leaved Bucephalandra that is said to be found in the Sanggau area in West Kalimantan (Indonesian part of Borneo). Its exact locality and species belonging is unknown to us. We propagate this Bucephalandra in our aquaria for more than one year. Its linear leaves have a blade of about 30 x 4.5 mm and a 5 mm long petiole. The margin is slightly curled, the tip blunt with a short, needle-like projection. Young leaves are light brown-red, later changing to dark brown-green. The 1.5 to 2 mm wide rhizome is much ramified, causing a dense, bushy growth habit. Grown submerged, the plant reaches a height of about 6 cm Until now our plants have not yet flowered.

According to our experience, this small Bucephalandra is not only very decorative but also remarkable for its excellent aquarium suitability and productive propagation. In our opinion it deserves a wide distribution in the aquarium hobby. As well as other Bucephalandra forms, it is best used as epiphyte on rock or wood, however it can also be fixed to the ground, provided that the rhizome is not buried. It is easily propagated by cuttings. Medium lighting, good CO2 and nutrient supply and water current are recommendable.

Bucephalandra sp. "Velvet Tricolor" is very interesting for the aquascaping as a low growing, bushy epiphyte for the hardscape, also in bigger amounts due to its good reproduction.



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.

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.
