Description

Bucephalandra theia Red is an exciting new plant to the hobby.

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 would do even better 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
