Bucephalandra Kedagang Japan UNS Tissue Culture
Common Name: Bucephalandra Kedagang Japan
Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro in a state-of-the-art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
Buce Kedagang Japan is an easy plant that is perfect for beginners. It can be grown submerged or emersed. The plant is very slow growing, with new leaves sprouting from long, thin rhizomes. It can be propagated by separating the rhizome gently and attaching to driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread.
It thrives under low to moderate lighting and adapts well to various water parameters. Like Anubias, Buce plants have rhizomes that attach and grow on solid surfaces. While it attaches exceptionally well to rocks, it can also flourish on driftwood and other substrates. When placed in the substrate, ensure only a portion of the Buce plant is under the substrate while keeping the rhizome exposed, as burying it can lead to rot.
