kiskas, Those are healthy looking stems - I'm happy for you. What are your water parameters? Who is your source? How long have you been growing them? What rock are they attached on? Any algae problem? What species do you want to have next?

[can they seed underwater? - ikuzo] I don't think the flower could get pollinated underwater = no seed formation.

[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 - ikuzo]

@ikuzo, when you say keep water at substrate level do you mean the tank substrate or the pot substrate?

Several of my Bucephalandra , Piptospatha , Homalomena, Aridarum and Furutadoa species are growing faster at this warmer time of the year. I was surprised to see a pink flower bud coming out of Bucephalandra sp Sekadau2. I also like the variegation of one Piptospatha species. Certainly, the Bucephalandra sp Kualakuayan2 leaves have that stunning iridiscent electric blue/purplish brilliance.

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
Hi sorry I didn't see this sooner. Thank you for this advice.

So, can I just remove from the water and transport directly into this environment you described? Should I be worried about die off or anything?

Thanks again!

Are you growing all of these emersed? Kudos on finding things like Piptostapha, Homalomena, Aridarum and Furutadoa. Is there a source available for any of those?

You may want to keep an eye on them from what I have read they will do on for a while completely submersed but will eventually die off that is the piptospatha, Aridarum and homalema, the buces do fine submersed. I would be interested in how they do long term though since most people don't keep them submersed.

You're right, I'm slow in getting my emersed tank set up - I already have the light fixture and substrate. I just need to get the glass tank and cover.

Luckily, the Piptospatha, Aridarum and Homalomena species are still actively growing since last December. Soon I'll have them grown emersed.

Thanks.

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?
if you have covered tank then try to keep your buce above of water surface, with roots submerged underwater. Humidity should be good - I have closed tank and buces are not drying.

Thanks for that advice. I'll try it for sure.
