Bucephalandra 'Super Blue'

 

Bucephalandra 'Super Blue'

Bucephalandra are found exclusively in the Indian Archipelago. This is a group of islands between the Malacca Peninsula (Southeast Asia) and Australia, most Bucephalandra grow in tropical Borneo. Naturally familiar with the rainy season and associated water level rise, this marsh plant grows partly above and partly below water, in fast-flowing rivers, streams and banks, firmly rooted to stones, rocks and wood. This flowering plant is susceptible to sudden changes in water values; Bucephalandra may then melt away and lose its leaves. If the plant is otherwise healthy, it often simply grows back. According to many, the Bucephalandra resembles the Cryptocoryne in appearance and leaves. However, this plant looks more like the Anubias. This is because the Bucephalandra is also a slow growing rhizome plant, meaning that the rhizome grows above the (nutrient) soil. The roots of the Bucephalandra attach fairly quickly to wood and stone. The Bucephalandra requires good lighting and (liquid) fertilization to develop properly. CO2 can promote color intensity and growth, but is not a requirement.
