bsmith is your bucephalandra is not a Kapit? No Kampit? From one person who collect Bucephalandra in nature i know that small bucephalandra (KayuLapis, Sekadau1) growing in river, large bucephalandra (Sanggau, Sekadau2) growing in rocks, and goes underwater for a short time when is raining. When large bucephalandra goes underwater has produce a small leaves and this small size can be maintained in water for a long time. So some of buce growing underwater, some growing over so then should primarily feed from their root system if it not in a water. In many asian shop you could also see picture of bucephalandra in flowerpot and I suspect that their store bucephalandra in this form or even cultivate.

It's getting a lot easier to find here on the forum.. still kind of expensive but not as bad as it used to be. I know lookin4roselines and Speedie 408 sell it now and then. And I believe Gordon Richards is working on getting some.

I do not know what you're talking about. I haven't sold any of these plants to anyone :/ BTW I never met with such a high price. This is a terrible price.

I wanted to bring in a case of Buceph. plants for the forum however after much work, research and communications with officials:

Bucephalandra are not allowed for export out of Borneo due to the fact they are not commercially grown. Since the plants take so long to grow it is not a viable business option. Exporters cannot provide photo-sanitary certificates due because the plants are not recognized. There are no commerical growers of Buceph plants on Earth.

All Bucephalandra in this country have been illegally obtained if you like it or not.

You can't fight with me regarding this. All Buceph are smuggled out of Borneo and enter illegal trade.

All are illegally obtained.
All have been smuggled out of Borneo.

The only legal plants would be ones collected for science.
None of those are in the hobby trade.

I won't be selling them till I find a legal option.

You are also bringing into Europe illegally.
You are also shipping plants into the US illegally.
