The endemic genus Bucephalandra is only found in Borneo and like the Cryptocorynes and Anubias it belongs to the arum family.
The exact scientific definition is currently very uncertain, so we get the name of this variety from the habit of the plant. Bucephalandra species are epiphytes and should therefore be attached to stones and roots. Bucephalandra are found growing as dense mats over stones in streams.
The leaves of the Bucephalandra sintang are oblong shaped that get narrower as it nears the rhizome. Bucephalandra sintang, with proper condition will produce a beautiful green leaf color which makes it a great addition to any aquarium.
