Bucephalandra sp. Needle Leaf – 1-2-Grow Tissue Culture

Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.

 

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. Some added CO2 and a little more light is beneficial. 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.

The creeping rhizome must not be covered when planting, otherwise the plant will rot and die.
