Bucephalandra Red Angel is a very rare smaller leaves Buce that can grow very beautiful red and dark purple leaves, especially under higher RGB LED aquarium lighting intensity.

This very rare and attractive red leaves Bucephalandra is a prized collector's Buce which is best used as a special foreground highlight plant by attaching it to a small rock. Red Angel is understood to be one of the rarest species of Bucephalandra and amongst the most sought species after Bucephalandra Brownie Ghost 2011 / 2012 which is mentioned to be extinct in the wild.

It is perfectly suitable to grow this plant under lower lighting level but for best red colouration, higher lighting level is recommended.

Based on Aquarzon's observations, the difference between Red Angel and Red Theia is that Red Angel is smaller than Red Theia. When Bucephalandra Red Angel grows, new leaves are usually rounded and it progresses to be slightly longer shape as the leaves mature.

According to our source, it is very rare and to compare the rarity of Red Angel to Brownie, it is around 1:50 ratio. This simply means for around every 50 Bucephalandra Brownie naturally occurring in Borneo, only 1 Bucephalandra Red Angel is naturally occurring.

 Our original specimen is obtained from a local aquarium hobbyist and has been submersed grown for almost 1 year.

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.
