Aquatic Plants
Usually ships in 1-2 business days from our fulfillment center

Bucephalandra Pygmy is a beautiful variant within the Bucephalandra family. This aquatic plant features varying colors, like most buce species, and is hardy in nature as the rest of bucephalandra species. Buce Pygmy can be grown submerged in a planted aquarium tank or emerged in a variety of terrarium-like setups. Bucephalandra Pygmy doesn't require high lighting and can adapt to a wide range of aquarium tank parameters making it a great choice for beginner aquarists. Its care is comparable to that of Anubias and Cryptocoryne species and it can easily be attached to hardscape material such as aquarium driftwood or aquascaping stones. It is commonly used to fill in gaps in an aquascape layout as well. Care should be taken to ensure the rhizome is not buried as doing so will result in rot.

When planted in groups, Buce Pygmy creates a beautiful display and often provides refuge for smaller aquarium tank inhabitants such as freshwater fish, shrimp and fry. Its small size also makes it perfect for a wide range of aquarium tank sizes. Bucephalandra comes in many varieties, shapes, colors and looks best when kept in clumps in a planted aquarium tank.
