Layouts containing this plant

 
 

Red Bucephalandra varieties, potted. 

In nature, Bucephalandra usually grows on rocks or wood in rivers and streams - much like Anubias, which they resemble regarding use and care in the aquarium.

The creeping stem, rhizome, must not be covered when planting. This will cause the plant to rot and die.
