Bucephalandra Red Blade is a medium-sized variation in the Bucephalandra family. At first glance, Buce Red Blade has uniquely attractive foliage with oblong ruffled leaves, a raised center vein and varying color tones that mainly consist of rich green, yellow, and reddish hues. Like all Bucephalandra, Bucephalandra Red Blade produces exaggerated iridescent coloration when given proper care and placed under aquarium LED lighting.
Bucephalandra is an epiphytic plant and will sprout new growth from its rhizome. Bucephalandra does best in low to medium lighting and will grow nice and dense if favorable conditions are provided. CO2 injection along with a good flow and regular tank maintenance will promote quicker, more robust growth. The stem and rhizome should not be covered when planting as this will cause the plant to rot and wither. Care can be comparable to other popular aquatic plant species such as Anubias and Java Ferns, but Bucephalandra will not tolerate sudden changes well.
