This Bucephalandra is an uncommon bigger leaves variety of Buce that has the unique characteristic of growing bright green leaves with dark green veins which resembles the watermelon pattern based on Aquarzon's long term observations. Some leaves may appear more solid while some may have the 'watermelon pattern' more visible.
It is best used as a special feature midground plant attached to a driftwood or used as a highlight foreground plant attached to a stone or lava rock.
While this Buce resembles Bucephalandra Chain Saw, the exact ID of this Bucephalandra is not known as this point of time and is currently labelled as G2 in our cultivation area.
Our original stock of this variety was sourced from a local hobbyist more than 2 years ago.
Please note that not every piece has the same colour tone as it can change based on aquarium conditions that vary from time to time. For example, even by just moving it from center to a side of an aquarium, its new growth may be greener due to the reduction in lighting received. Aquarium lighting can also affect its appearance. Under pure white lighting, most Buce appear greener and under RGB LED aquarium lighting, most Buce usually reflect more colourful tones.
The Bucephalandra rhizome for sale here by Aquarzon here is indoor aquarium submersed grown. It is not emersed or tissue culture which can suffer melting when transitioned to an aquarium. This leads to ammonia and organics increase, making it susceptible to algae issues like BBA. It is also not pond grown which can carry outdoor parasites and diseases. It is also not harvested from the wild as it is non-legal and can cause extinction. The Buce rhizome for sale here is naturally aquarium-propagated which takes a long time due to its very slow growth rate.
Majority of our Buce is aquarium submersed grown for 1-3 years and only sold once they meet our quality standards. The price reflects the care, effort and time in propagating these very slow-growing plants (some growing just 1 leaf in 2 weeks).
By purchasing from Aquarzon, you are assured of quality, indoor aquarium submersed grown Bucephalandra that do not suffer diseases or emerse-to-submerse melting issues that can affect emersed-grown Bucephalandra and support sustainable growth efforts which helps protect them from extinction.
