This miniature plant is probably a type of Bucephalandra pygmaea, which generally colonises larger rocks and stones in its natural habitat. It is often also found in a community with larger growing species of Bucephalandra or other arum genera. The 'Mini Needle Leaf' variety is extremely slow-growing and is especially suitable for delicate aquascaping landscapes in the Scaper's tank or Nano Cube. Like all Bucephalandra species, it is easy and simple to care for. The use of small algae cleaners such as Amano shrimps or Clithon snails is recommended.
