Bucephalandra Hellfire is a beautiful relatively rare, larger leaves Buce that can grow absolutely gorgeous dark leaves.
It is one of the iconic Bucephalandra collector species which is perfect as a feature plant in an aquascape.
Aquarzon considers this as our top 3 Bucephalandra for beauty, with the beauty rivalled by Bucephalandra Pandora Queen.
When we put the side by 2 side, our observations is our Pandora Queen has colder colour tone (more bluish), whereas Hellfire has warmer colour tone (usually appears a bit redder/maroonish).
Depending on the lighting it is grown in and the lighting it is under, this species may reflect maroonish, reddish and/or bluish tones.
Aquarzon has spent a very long time taking more than 100 photos of this species and majority of them are displayed here.
Below are the photos show this species which we took under indoor room light:
Below photos showing this species are taken under our high-intensity aquarium RGB LED.
Below are more photos of them. We had taken over 100 photos of this species of which majority are shown here:
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.
