Common Name: Bucephalandra Green Skeleton King

Bucephalandra Green Skeleton King has large, broad, oval-shaped leaves with textured edges and a distinct pattern on its leaves that earns its name. It's highly prized for its pronounced iridescent coloration with appropriate care and when placed under aquarium LED lighting. All Bucephalandra varieties are very slow-growing, with new leaves sprouting from long, thin rhizomes. It can be propagated by cutting the rhizome and attaching it to driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread. 

As an epiphytic plant, Bucephalandra generates new growth from its rhizome. It is a slow-grower and can be grown submerged or emersed. Optimal results are achieved for Bucephalandra in low to medium lighting conditions, fostering dense growth when provided with proper water conditions. CO2 injection, adequate water flow, and consistent tank upkeep can result in faster and more robust plant growth. When planting, don't cover the stem and rhizome to prevent plant decay and deterioration. While its care is the same as popular aquatic species like Anubias and Java Ferns, Bucephalandra is less tolerant of abrupt parameter changes.

Key Features & Important Notes

  • Bucephalandra is an epiphytic aquarium plant that can be attached to aquarium hardscape.
  • Do not plant Bucephalandra in substrate and cover the rhizome. This will cause it to melt and rot.
  • Bucephalandra’s final size, coloration and growth rate are dependent upon the condition of the aquarium. Photos are a representation of what you will receive and may vary.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • CO2 injection will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
