Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art labratory 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 Red Mini is a farm grown variant of Bucephalandra that has just recently been propagated for in vitro growth.. This is a very rare plant, which is made even more rare by the fact that its grown in tissue culture. 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 and it can take almost half a year for this tissue culture cup to grow in. It can be propagated by cutting the rhizome and attached to driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread.
Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.

I've ordered this twice and the tissue cultured plants look great when I get them. After two weeks, the first plant melted away, including the rhizome getting soft and mushy. My second order of multiple plants is beginning to worry me. All the other Bucephalandra species I've ordered from here are doing fine to thriving. I believe I removed all the culture gel before placing these in my tank. I gave this a five-star review for how the plants looked when I received them, my ability to maintain them has a two-star rating now.
These are awesome. Very small and compact with a nice dark color and arrived in great condition.
6 large clumps in the large cup!
I tied tiny clumps to rocks and placed them around the bottom and in cracks of the driftwood. It has a really cool color
