Bucephalandra Velvet is a beautiful variant belonging to the Bucephalandra aquatic plant family. Featuring varying color tones, Buce Velvet is a small to medium-sized bucephalandra species that can be grown in aquarium tank settings as well as in emersed conditions such as a terrarium or paludarium setup. When growing Bucephalandra in a planted aquarium, this aquatic plant is very forgiving and will adapt to a wide range of conditions. However, low to medium aquarium LED light along with CO2 injection helps to produce robust, dense growth along with the varying hues that make Bucephalandra plants extremely coveted and loved.
A suitable aquatic plant for beginning enthusiasts, Bucephalandra is fairly hardy and comparable in care to that of Anubias, Cryptocoryne, Ferns, and Mosses. Bucephalandra comes in many varieties, shapes, colors and looks best when kept in clumps in a planted aquarium tank. Buce Velvet, like other Buce, is an epiphytic aquarium plant and can grow properly without being planted in aquarium soil. We recommend placing it between gaps in hardscape layouts or tying it to aquascaping stones and aquarium driftwood. Over time, it will self-attach and should be left undisturbed, if possible.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro by laboratories who specialize in propagating aquatic plants. There is a huge selection of plant species that have been propagated this way. This is truly the best option for those who want absolutely zero unwanted pests, algae and pesticides. This makes them perfect for shrimp keepers and any planted tank enthusiasts alike.
NOTE: It is important to remove the tissue culture agar gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away, divide, and plant.
