Common Name: Needle Leaf Buce

 

Though Bucephalandras are from Asia and Anubias fom Africa, they have a lot in common, including how to grow them. 

Bucephalandra sp. 'Needle leaf' has a bit higher demands than the 'diabolica' and pygmaeae, but is still a very easy plant to grow. Immersed leaves are green, elongated and slightly waved, showing numerous tiny, white dots. Each leaf is less than 0.5 cm broad and between 1 and 2 cm long. Youngest parts of the rhizome display a nice, red colour. Growth is slow.

 

A great plant to add accents to any aquascape or to add to your Bucephalandra collection!
