Information Covered

  • Quick overview of one of my jar setups for a Bucephalandra
  • A bit of info about Bucephalandra plants

In this video I show you just one of several ways I grow Bucephalandra plants. This method involves 2 petri dishes and a borosilicate food jar. I also explain the process of transitioning Buces from submersed (under water) to emersed (out of water) growth.

Where to buy Bucephalandra

For hobbyists in the USA, I use and highly recommend Buceplant.com.

They carry a huge selection of Bucephalandra, as well as tons of other amphibious and aquatic plants which can be grown emersed for terraria and wabi kusa.
