Buce Green Wavy is a farm-grown variant of Bucephalandra that's been gaining popularity. It can be characterized by the bright green ruffled leaves which can range from about .75 - 1.0 inches.
The plant is very slow growing, with new leaves sprouting from long, thin rhizomes. It can be propagated by cutting the rhizome and attached to driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread.
