Bucephalandra Paris is a beautiful specimen that belongs to the Bucephalandra family. It’s an easy aquatic plant that is perfect for beginner hobbyists and can be grown submerged or immersed. Like most Buce plants, Buce Paris is very slow growing and has beautiful green foliage that is turquoise-ish with a pink stem to offer some eye-catching contrast. Newer leaves are a different color and change as they mature and final coloration is dependent on the aquarium's care and water parameters. Like all Buce, this aquatic plant sprouts new leaves from long, thin rhizomes. If given proper care, Buce Paris grows densely and makes a beautiful centerpiece in a planted tank. It can be propagated by cutting the rhizome and attached to aquarium driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread.
