This wonderful Buce plant is recommended for beginners to Buce who are caring for this type of plant for the first time. Bucephalandra sp. Io Green differs from other Buce species in that it grows fairly quickly (by the standards of Bucephalandra!) And is comparatively easy to care for. The delicate colour of the leaves with light to juicy dark green leaves and a pronounced distribution can easily be compared with other Buce – Plants compete. Bright light contributes to the rapid development of the plant and a greener leaf colour.
Care of Bucephalandra:
Caring for the Buce plants is similar to the Anubias and Cryptocoryne species. Bucephalandra makes no great demands on the aquarium, they can also cope with little light and without the addition of Co². This, of course, extends the possible uses in the aquarium and so the plant also grows on the edges of the pool, which are normally least illuminated by the cover light. Bucephalandra grows much better and forms more intense colours from the more light and additional Co² is available. Bucephalandra species are very robust plants that can be planted in aquariums, terrariums and paludariums both underwater and above water. It only needs little to moderate light, thrives at almost any water value and can cope with a pH value between 5.0 – 8.0 and water temperatures of 20 – 28 ° C.
Planted with Bucephalandra:
Like Anubias, Bucephalandra grows on stones, roots, and other surfaces. As a rule, plants are placed on any decorative item with a nylon thread or plant glue. If Bucephalandra plants are to be planted in the substrate, they should only be partially embedded in the substrate so that the rhizome is exposed. If the rhizome is buried, it can start to rot and die.
Cultivation of Bucephalandra:
The home of the Bucephalandra is Borneo Indonesia and belongs to the Araceae family. In the plant nurseries, the plants are propagated and cultivated in emersed (overwater) breeding. After the Buce plant has grown underwater for some time, it loses the leaves above the water and develops the so-called underwater leaves. These water leaves are the ones that make Bucephalandra so sought after. Because depending on the species, each Bucephlanadra shows a different intense red, brown, blue or purple colour with wavy, jagged, oval or oblong leaves.
