Bucephalandra sp. "Kedagang" is a relatively small Bucephalandra variant which is quite long known but still rare in the hobby. The longish, arching leaves with rippled margin grow to a length of around 4 - 5,5 cm and to a width of 0.8 - 1,2 cm. The leaf stalk is about 0,6 - 1 cm long. The upper side of the leaf is dark brown to green with a blueish shine and a lot of tiny silvery dots. The leaf underside is of a silvery white to pale purple. The rhizome tips and the young leaf stalks are wine red. The rhizome has a creeping to ascending growth habit and branches readily. Thus the plant will grow into a large group over time. In the aquarium it flowers only very seldom.

In comparison with other Bucephalandra variants, "Kedagang" is a rather "fast" grower. It does not have high demands, but under medium to high light and a good CO2 supply and ample nutrient levels it is the most beautiful. I is best tied to rock or driftwood where it attaches itself by its roots.

My first bucephalandra, but it's highly unlikely to be my last. It adds a nice variation in both colour and texture that looks great alongside my other epiphytes

I’m obsessed with Bucephalandra. I brought 8 unit to make a bonsai tree and was worried they would go far enough, but that that’s all I could afford because the price has jumped up in recent months. However the plants were of a good size and I had plenty. The are stunning and look the part in my set up. As always great service from Aquaessentials.

Only 50% of my Buce survived melt. Beautiful but fragile. Jury's out on whether I would return for these.

Very healthy plant, well packed but rather small plant which makes it very expensive.
