Bucephandra Sp features small, rounded green leaves, and is hardy and undemanding by nature. It works well as a midground choice in planted tanks and does best when attached to aquarium hardscapes such as stones and driftwood. Low light and clean water are the bare minimum for this species, but additional care such as CO2 injection and a regular dosing schedule will provide for better, faster growth. Care for bucephalandra is similar to Anubias, Cryptocoryne and Java Ferns. It can be propagated by cutting the rhizome and attached to driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread.
Tissue culture plants should be removed from the cup as soon as possible. All plants grow on some sort of synthetic growing medium, ranging anywhere from liquid to jelly to firm gel. This should be removed and rinsed off. Gently massage the roots between your fingers until the gel dissolves away. Most plants can be broken up into smaller pieces and spread out in your aquarium. Smaller pieces are easier to plant.
