This plant is sourced from Tropica Aquarium Plants.  Bucephalandra is native to Borneo and has become quite popular recently in the Aquascaping world.  It is an epiphytic plant and is used in a similar way as Anubias for Aquascaping.  This is a red variety with a wavy leaf edge.


Description from Tropica Aquarium Plants:

Red Bucephalandra varieties, potted. 

The Bucephalandra resemble Anubias very much and should be treated the same way. They usually grow more or less epiphytic in or near water.

Bucephalandra sp. 'Red' does best at lower light levels and is very easy to grow. The leaves are of a very dark green or leathery red color. Numerous tiny, white dots and sometimes a faint, metallic, blue color will appear on submerse leaves. The size of the leaf is 2-4 cm wide, 4-6 cm long and usually it will present wavy edges.

Do not cover the creeping rhizome when planting. This will cause the plant to rot and die.


  • Lighting requirement: Low
  • Growth rate: Slow
  • Hardiness: Easy
