Bucephalandra - Exquisite Aquatic Plants for Your Aquarium

Discover the elegance of Bucephalandra, a stunning genus of aquatic plants that adds unparalleled beauty to any aquarium or aquatic setup. Known for its lush, vibrant greenery and unique leaf shapes, Bucephalandra is a highly sought-after choice among aquarists and plant enthusiasts alike.

Ideal Tank Parameters:

  • Temperature: 72-82°F (22-28°C)
  • pH: 6.0-7.5
  • Lighting: Moderate to high, adaptable to varying intensities
  • Substrate: Not necessary; can be grown as epiphytes on driftwood or stone
  • CO2: Not required but can enhance growth

Originating from Borneo, these captivating plants showcase an array of varieties, each boasting distinct foliage patterns, sizes, and hues. Their slow growth and hardy nature make them an ideal choice for both beginners and experienced aquarists, thriving in various water conditions and lighting intensities.

Attaching as Epiphyte Plants:

  1. Clean the surface of the driftwood or stone where you intend to attach the Bucephalandra.
  2. Use aquarium-safe glue or fishing line to gently secure the plant rhizome onto the chosen decor. Avoid burying the rhizome in the substrate as it may rot.
  3. Allow time for the plant to attach itself securely to the surface. Over time, it will anchor itself naturally.

Bucephalandra's versatility in aquascaping is unmatched, whether used as foreground accents, mid-ground highlights, or even as stunning focal points in a planted tank. Their low maintenance needs and adaptability make them an excellent addition to any aquascape, providing natural beauty while contributing to a balanced ecosystem.

With proper care, these aquatic marvels flourish, developing captivating underwater gardens and providing shelter for fish and invertebrates. Their durability and resistance to common aquarium pests make them a reliable choice for long-term aquarium enthusiasts.

Each Bucephalandra variant offers a unique aesthetic appeal, from the intricate patterns of 'Brownie Blue' to the vibrant green hues of 'Wavy Green.' Whether you're creating a lush underwater paradise or aiming for a minimalist aquascape, Bucephalandra plants add a touch of natural splendor and tranquility to your aquatic environment.

Explore our diverse selection of Bucephalandra variants and elevate the aesthetics of your aquarium with these enchanting aquatic treasures.



This Bucephalandra has been ethically sourced and produced by a nursery farm. Bucephalandra is quickly becoming an endangered species where it is native in Borneo. To curb the illegal harvesting and importing of Bucephalandra Aquascaperoom Canada is only sourcing plants from reputable nurseries and growers. Bucephalandra "hunters" and illegal harvesters are quickly contributing to the problem.

Willing To Help!

100% satisfied with the service I received. I am new to the hobby and Leo took the time to answer any questions I had and even suggested a few products to help my plants thrive in their new home without harming any live stock.

Great Local Business

I have been in contact with the store since January in order to get the right selection of plants. Even with the pandemic and lack of supplies they were able to get my full selection which was pretty big. The quality of Tropica plants are impeccable. They answered all my questions and help me out with many tips regarding how to best plant my selection. If you wish to support a local business and get the best selection of plants 100% recommend using Aquascaperoom Canada.

Amazing Service

Great service. On time Toronto pick-up. Received a follow-up email from Leo the next day asking about my satisfaction with their products and service. That doesn't happen everyday and it was very much appreciated. I will buy from Aquascaperoom again soon.

Best Customer Service!

Such an amazing customer service. I ordered a few plants and some didnt look too good. I contacted them and they responded quickly. They took time to help me and walked me through what to do with the plants. They are very kind and understanding. I will be purchasing more from them in the future.

I’ve been using live plants in my aquariums for a little over two years. I get a lot of them from the aquascaperoom website. I have never had any problems, all the plants arrive very healthy and I bought their fertilizer tablets and liquid fertilizer and both are amazing for helping keep my plants healthy. They got so much variety on the website and the shipping is amazing. I can’t recommend them enough, you won’t be sorry you bought plants from this amazing business.

Express Shipping with DOA!

The customer service here was absolutely above and beyond! I had 2 items arrive in not so good health but that probably happened during shipping and not because of the company, regardless I was refunded the 110% store credit for the items. Everything was well packed upon my next order and even came with a 72hr heat pack for the plants! I will do a lot more shopping here and will recommend it to anyone! Thank you Aquascaperoom!
