Bucephalandra Elegant is a very beautiful and rare large variety of Buce that can grow large and colourful leaves. We have grown this rare variety for more than 3 years.
To understand how large this rare Bucephalandra Elegant can grow, one leaf can grow to a maximum size of more than 5cm (see the photo we took with the ruler). This Bucephalandra grows very nice coloured-leaves especially when grown under high lighting.
Stock is usually very limited for this plant due to the its very slow growth. During our propagation period, on average, 1 fully grown leaf takes around 3 weeks to grow. A cutting of 4 leaves easily takes 3 months to grow which is one reason why this Bucephalandra has a higher cost. It is also one of the largest growing Bucephalandra, rare and also one of the most colourful Bucephalandra.
We have taken many photos of them here. The initial 3 photos are under MML RGB LED and the other 5 photos are taken under room light.
Due to its very slow growth, stock for this variety is usually very limited for this. Once it is sold out, it usually takes a few weeks to a few months to be available again.
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).
