Bucephalandra Sintang Green is a small-leafed Buce specimen in the Bucephalandra family. This particular variation features bright green leaves that produce a subtle sheen when lit by aquarium LEDs. Its growth is relatively compact and has the potential to be a stunning midground aquarium plant when taken care of properly.
