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.

Plant information:

  • Type: Rhizomatous
  • Origin: Asia
  • Growth rate: Slow
  • Size: 5-10cm +

I love this plant. It is a deep almost blue-green. I managed to split it into three. Very healthy and thriving.

Good sized plant... Split into 2/3 pieces... Healthy and green when arrived

Lovely plants, but with hindsight and physical plants to compare in the flesh...I should've bought more kedagang than these which are smaller.

Nice plant I’ve split it into two

Great quality, lovely red stems. Initially these looked a bit shabby after a few days but they are now bouncing back with new shoots. Beautiful leaf shape and velvet green colour leaves.

by Martyn G.
Quite a bit of melting whilst the plant got used to submerged growth but is doing well now with medium lights, EI dosing and injected CO2. No flowers yet unlike my Anubis which flowers weekly!

I have high lights and I've no shade so would it still be OK? I also have injected co2
