wow, amazing. Are you good at identifying buce? Are you selling any of your collection? Where did you get yours from? PM me.
I have 3, they are growing painfully slow. One leaf a month, maybe.

to be honest, there are 300+ types of Buce out there, even experts only can ID not even half of them. don't fool by their fancy names, most of Buce came from a few places in Indonesia and Malaysia. most of them are variations, for example brownie series all came from the same place. so basically they are the same plant. if you are interested PM me for further info.

I have these 3 and I lost track of which is which. You have them in separate picture? I can take a pic of mine tonight and see if you can identify them. Two of them are very small leaves, and one is larger, maybe the larger one is Nanga pinoh. I forgot to take a pic when I first got mine last year and internet search didn't help much.

Nanga Pinoh
lamandau
sanggau

Nanga Pinoh---this one has a few variations. depends on which one you got. a wild guess bigger and wilder leaves should be it.

lamandau---a lot of little shine spots on the leaves

sanggau----green with no spots on the leaves

The larger leaf one has many dots on the leaves and a little shades of purplish color???. I like this one the most probably this is nanga pinoh

Those 2 smaller one I have, their leaves are smaller than a dime and mostly green. I didn't pay much attention on the dots. Might have to take it out and look tonight.

What are the growth rate for you. I saw you kept them in a AS tank.

If your plants are too small to be ID, just be patient...

These are Hardy plants, no Highlight & Co2 needed. growth rate is 1 leave per week.

Have you ever split them? I never saw the rhizome grow longer, I was told you can split them like anubias. I kept them in low light in co2 just to make sure no algae on leaves, so far so good.

Are they all going to be green when grown emersed? Will you loose leaves in emersed form when you submerged them? Will most Buce show color when submerged?
