Buy Bucephalandra - From Borneo into your aquarium
Bucephalandra is a popular aquatic plant for aquarists. Originally from Southeast Asia (Borneo), this aquatic plant has now found its way into many aquariums worldwide. And for good reasons: Its simple care makes this plant a good choice for any aquascape or shrimp tank. The Bucephalandra delights aquarists around the world because of its wide variety of colors and shapes. Good to know: The easy-care aquarium plant is already satisfied with little light and nutrients. The frugal "Bucen" thrive in a wide variety of waters. It is recommended to use soft water and to place the plants in partial shade. This is how the aquatic plants like it in their native habitat. The popular aquatic plant requires relatively little fertilizer. That's why Bucephalandras often grow healthily in the simplest aquariums with little to no fertilizer. At the same time the plant grows at its own pace: It only grows larger very slowly. But even in a small format from the lab, Bucephalandra can be used as an in vitro aquatic plant for aquarium design.
While aquarists are always on the lookout for new plants for their aquarium landscapes, new plants are always being found that are perfect for aquascaping. Among others, the Bucen was discovered: This aquarium plant is one of the so-called endemics. Endemites are plants that can only be found in certain places. A special plant that only exists at the other end of the world is a very special aquatic plant for your aquarium. The plant from Borneo is nice to look at: With its short stems and flat to wavy leaf shapes, the Bucephalandra is a real eyecatcher for any aquascape. The flower bulbs, which are a few centimeters large, give the aquarium plant its very own phenotype.
If you want to buy the Bucephalandra for your aquascape, you can easily grow the plant on coconuts or roots for further growth. The Bucephalandra aquarium plant thrives especially well on stones. Our tip: Bucephalandra likes a gentle current. That means, if you let your Bucephalandra grow next to the water filter, it will thrive even more splendidly.
The recommended temperature is 18° to 24° Celsius. Due to its origin from Borneo, the Bucephalandra also likes temperatures up to 28°. We recommend trying out what works best in your aquarium! Although the Bucephalandra adapts quite quickly to new conditions, you can see big differences in the development of the leaves after a short period of time. When exposed to light, the leaves of the Bucephalandra develop their beautiful, typical color. The Bucephalandra can also have particularly intense reactions to environmental changes: If this is the case, most of the leaves will die quickly. But because Bucephalandra is a fairly simple aquarium plant, it is characterized by a rapid regression of its leaves. So even when stressed, your favorite aquarium plant will grow back quickly.
