They made up for it by giving my multiple rhizomes which will look great when they come back.
I order 4 diferent types of bucephalandras from this site and I had them shipped to Florida and then to central america (separately), 8 days total of shipping without opening the box once. I thought they will be dead when they arrived but no, a few yellow leaves and some melting; having in mind that they spent that much time just sealed in a plastic bag I consider this a WIN!.
The plant was of great quality and health when I received it. Much smaller than expected, but the leaf texture and shape makes this a worthwhile addition. Serves well as an accent rather than focal point as some of the other buce can do.
Pretty cool plant, tied it down and tossed it in. Looks a little more unique then most buce with its longer leaves. Almost reminds me of feathers instead of leaves.
