A very slow and compact-growing plant. One of the larger types of Buce which make for a stunning centre piece. The leaves can be very dark or green in color. It has a pronounced mid-rib and lateral veins. The color of the spathe can be pink or white. It is a large and tall bucephalandra with reddish rhizome.
- If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- Buce may melt when introduced to a new tank but as long as the rhizome is kept healthy, new growth will occur.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
- Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
