Bucephalandra 'green velvet' is an exciting new plant to the hobby which Aquafleur have been growing for many months.

Bucephalandra is a genus of flowering plants in the Araceae family so it makes them very unusual. The name derives from the Greek word for 'bull's head' due to its horn shaped antlers. Native to Borneo, this is a rare plant in the UK which is why it's so exciting!

All Bucephalandra are slow growing and as a result prefer a low tech type of environment. I dare say it would do well in a CO2 infused tank, but it's certainly not necessary. Comparable to Anubias in terms of environment it prefers (low light). You need to tie them to wood or rock to survive otherwise the plant may rot.

Absolutely beautiful foreground plant with great foliage. Attached to a couple of rocks and already seeing new leaf and root development. Leaf shape is very striking and a nice contrast to more traditional plants.

Gorgeous bright leaves, very healthy and really really big compared to local shops. Got 3 or 4 plantlets from one plant.
