Bucephalandra 'Green Wavy'

Bucephalandra is a new genus to the aquarium world within the last few years.  It has become very popular, for good reason.  It is not difficult to grow and is extremely decorative.  Florida AquaticNurseries is happy to offer Bucephalandra ‘Green Wavy’. Bucephalandra is usually found in nature growing on rocks along the edge of fast-flowing streams, where it can be found both under water and above the surface, under fast-changing conditions.  When above the water, it requires very high humidity to remain healthy. The care and use of Bucephalandra 'Green Wavy' is much like the care and use of Anubias in the aquarium.  It is hardy, and tolerant of very low light levels.  It is typically atached to either wood or stone in the aqurium, because the roots are quite short, and it does not like to ahve the rhizome buried.  However, if you can manage to get it planted in a loose substrate in a way taht just the roots are buried, it can do very well that way too.  With its glossy, wavy green leaves, Bucephalandra ‘Green Wavy’ is a great addition to any aquarium.  Bucephalandra ‘Green Wavy’ flowers readily under water, for added interest.
