I have begun an emersed set up for most of my collection of Bucephalandra and other aroid species.

My favorite Bucephalandra from Melawi:


Are these Bucephalandra sp. Belindae? The leaves are only 3-4cm in length.

Another blue leafed Bucephalandra is Kualakuayan Type 2, the blue color has a metallic sheen to it. .

Bucephalandra 'belindae' have much narrower leaves than these specimens. Beautiful plants by the way.

So to get back to you guys about TC buces...I was never able to get a good aseptic start with these guys without killing the tissue itself. I may try again in the future but since I have school I can't do anymore experiments.

You probably need a laminar flow hood, some petridishes, 70% alcohol or 10% bleach solution, an autoclave, a thermostat oven, a greenhouse, and a box of medical graded glove to start

Our latest collection ...

I believe this is one of the most wanted Bucephalandra. In rare cases, the adapted submersed leaves can have a bright red coloration. They come from Hulu Kapuas.









The Japanese called them Brownie Red. For me, I'll name them based on the location, leaves colors and shape. Hulu Kapuas - Brown Wavy Leaves ...

Here is one guy not to order Bucephalandras from. I tried to purchase from him, and basically he ended up with my money and I never received any plants. He is a middleman in China as I later found out. I tried to get the plants legally, by the way. He is:

Jeffrey, the red coloration comes from low Nitrogen and likely higher light.
