Bucephalandra Melt: Stages of Growth

Apr 01 2016 4 Comments bucephalandra tips

Are you getting Bucephalandra melt? Many species of Bucephalandra grow on long, thin rhizomes that can sometimes be mistaken as stems. Black Mist, Krivbass, Raven, and Kedagang are all examples of Buce with small leaves that grow vertically off of long rhizomes. If you ever get a piece with bare rhizome, leave it in your tank emersed or submerged and after several weeks, new growth can occur.

#Flashbackfriday Beautiful Bali!

Flashback friday to our team trip to the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia. Although bucephalandra could not be found on this island, the natural landscape was truly a great inspiration for us aquascapers. The rice paddies in Ubud were not only breathtaking but contained great biodiversity in the surrounding forests. You could find critters such as freshwater micro fish and amphibians living in the paddies!  Not far from the paddies was a trail down a natural stream/creek. The hike was filled with wooden bridges and amazing natural stones, a great environment for all sorts of aquatic plants and creatures. This goes to...
