Common Name: Bucephalandra Super Mini Catherinae
Buce Super Mini Catherinae is one of the tiniest types of Buce we've ever come across. The extremely tiny leaves look like strands of UG or other miniature carpeting plants. The size of this incredible plant makes it highly desirable for nano and large tanks alike. It can be placed on the foreground to create an instant carpet in a smaller tank. For larger tanks, we like to place Catherinae in the front and Super Mini Catherinae in the back to create a sense of perspective as if the smaller leaves in the back were farther away.
Super Mini Catherinae like any other Buce can be grown submerged or immersed. 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.
