Pro Shrimp's comment: Bucephalandra have become very popular in recent years. They need very little in terms of light and fertilisation, but are very attractive and many types are even flowering under water. Similar to Anubias they are slow growing and should be attached to rocks or wood.

Because of the popularity this plant has been dramatically reduced in its natural habitat (most Bucephalandra on the market have been taken from the wild). Dennerle Bucephalandra have been bred in the laboratory and NOT been taken from the wild.

Please note: Dennerle plants are not treated with pesticides and are generally shrimp safe (it's still advisable to water the plants for a day). We are generally trying to keep plants snail free, but this cannot be 100% guaranteed. If you want 100% snail free plants, we would advise to look at in-vitro plants (for example Dennerle plant-it).

The plants are around 3-4cm.

Bucephalandra Lamandau

"Lamandau" is a rare, attractive Bucephalandra form from the Lamandau region in southwestern Borneo. It is not yet determined to species. Our plants are not collected in the nature but propagated in nurseries and tissue culture. "Lamandau Mini Red" develops densely ramified rhizomes and has a low, bushy habit. The leaves are short stalked, elongate-obovate with wavy margin. They get about 3.5 cm long and 1 cm wide. Especially the young leaves show nice red-brown tones; older leaves are dark green. The plant regularly develops pretty inflorescences. As well as other Bucephalandras, "Lamandau Mini Red" is best placed on the hardscape (rock or driftwood) where it will attach itself by its roots. The growth is very slow. Medium light intensity, good CO2 and nutrient supply and water current contribute to a vital appearance of the plant. It is easily propagated by cuttings of the main and side shoots. It can also be fastened to the ground, but the rhizome should not be buried in order to prevent rotting of the rhizome.
