kiskas, это приятно слышать от человека в России, кто ценит Bucephalandra видов.

(kiskas, it is nice to hear from a person in Russia who appreciates Bucephalandra species.)

Hmm, I wonder if they are actually two different ecotypes then like shine green and blue that are really similar just a slight coloration difference. I have a few different buces with the same leaves as sintang but they are bigger and the stem/rhizome and petioles are a lot different. I've started to wonder of some of the ecotypes are the same just named differently by different collectors. It would be like calling all the different leaf variation of a C wendtii "tropica" a different name based on the way the lea is. I'm also wondering in you can change the appearance of a buce over time by putting them in different conditions.

I was wondering.. can anyone tell me if it would be safe to transfer my Buce Kedagang from being totally underwater, to an emersed condition? How would one go about doing this?

The reason I want to do it, is that I think they grow faster and with less problems, like algae out of the water. I'd like to grow it out, and once it gets bigger, take some clippings and return them to my aquarium.

Although it does look like Sintang, it is totally a guess as to what location this Bucephalandra came from. There are at least a few other ecotypes that look very similar in appearance. Labeling it as such would only hurt the hobby by potentially spreading a mislabeled plant around.

I have a few Bucephalandra floating in my tanks that I've lost track of their identities. I've pretty much chucked them up to being 'mutts' since I cannot verify their location info. Sad that I turned a $50 plant to a $10-20 plant because I lost track of their identities.

you're welcome
can they seed underwater?
mine flowers frequently in the emersed setup
i never bother with the flowers
maybe i'll trim them to see if it helps the plant grow faster
great tips

put them in a closed container with high humidity
preferably in a pot so you can check things, clean, move them easily
i kept my pots in a used tank with water at substrate level

lighting should be way less than what you have in your tank (water depth diminish light a lot). if you keep the emersed tank outdoor like mine, keep them shaded all the time. ambient sunlight is good. direct sunlight? try at your own risk

yes, too many variations
not sure with specific location buce or scientific name. i read there's only 3 species named now? others are just labelled with color variations or the name of the place where they came

i lost track some of my crypts also because of my laziness to label them properly
