Although Bucephalandras come from Asia and Anubias from Africa, they have a lot in common, including how to grow them.
Bucephalandra sp. 'Needle leaf' has slightly higher requirements than 'diabolica' and pygmaeae, but is still a very easy plant to grow. Some extra CO2 and some more light is beneficial. Submerged leaves are green, elongated and slightly wavy, with numerous small, white dots. Each leaf is less than 0.5 cm wide and between 1 and 2 cm long. The youngest parts of the rhizome have a beautiful red color. Growth is slow.
The creeping rhizome should not be covered when planting, otherwise the plant will rot and die.
|Light requirement:||0.25 W/L|
