Bucephalandra Godzilla is a lovely species of Bucephalandra! Easily recognized by beautiful ruffled leaves that vary in bold reddish-brown tones, Bucephalandra Godzilla later gains even deeper coloration as the aquatic plant matures. When provided with optimal conditions, Bucephalandra Godzilla produces dense bushes of Buce that will frequently flower, making for a beautiful addition to any planted aquarium tank.  

Like most Bucephalandra plants, Buce Godzilla is epiphytic and will grow happily attached to aquarium driftwood or stones in an aquascape layout. Low to medium lighting with partial shade is perfect for most Buce species and while this plant will tolerate other conditions associated with keeping a low-tech aquarium, we highly recommend providing Buce with CO2 injection and a quality source of nutrients to boost growth, help the plant outcompete algae and produce the iridescent hues Bucephalandra are known for. Overall, Bucephalandra Godzilla is a suitable plant for most beginner aquarists that have the basics of aquarium keeping down. Buce's stem and rhizome should not be covered or glued when planting as this can cause damage to the plant.
