Bucephalandras have become very popular in recent years - they look good, are easy to grow and generally have different colours to many other plants. All bucephalandras are Epiphyte which means they are found growing on wood or rock in the wild - for this reason, it's best not to plant them in the substrate or they could rot out.
"Lamandau Mini Red" is a rare, attractive Bucephalandra form from the Lamandau region in southwestern Borneo. It is not yet determined to species. Our plants are not collected in the nature but propagated in nurseries and tissue culture. "Lamandau Mini Red" develops densely ramified rhizomes and has a low, bushy habit. The leaves are short stalked, elongate-obovate with wavy margin. They get about 3.5 cm long and 1 cm wide. Especially the young leaves show nice red-brown tones; older leaves are dark green. The plant regularly develops pretty inflorescences. As well as other Bucephalandras, "Lamandau Mini Red" is best placed on the hardscape (rock or driftwood) where it will attach itself by its roots. The growth is very slow.
