This is a very rare plant, and as the name suggests, it has very small leaves which can develop a nice reddish purple tint when grown submerged over a long period of time.  Like all Buce, this plant grows extremely slow.

  • Bucephalandra’s final size, coloration and growth rate are dependent upon the condition of the aquarium Photos are a representation of what you will receive and may vary.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
