Bucephalandra is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae. There are 30 species of Bucephalandra which have been discovered in Borneo and have been formally described by S.Y. Wong and P.C. Boyce. Most of the species are found in Borneo.
The care of Buce plants is similar to Anubias and Cryptocoryne species. Also, like Anubias, Buce plants are rhizome plants that attach to and grow on hard surfaces. This plant attaches particularly well to rocks, but can also grow very well on driftwood and other surfaces. If planted on the substrate, Buce plants should be only partially embedded in the substrate with the rhizome exposed. If the rhizome is buried, it is prone to rot.
Origin: Indigenous to Borneo, Indonesia. Cultivated in Asian and US nurseries.
Growth Rate: Low
Light Demand: Low
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.
