Bucephalandra ID and care

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/12...ots-2-5-a.html

So.. @wastewater posted these amazing pictures of this bucephalandra plant, and I'd love to know more about it! It's the second plant from the bottom and looks kinda like a palm or magnolia. Does anybody have care tips and/or identification of what variety/species it is?

So many fish to keep, not enough aquaria.

In his journal Waste notes "Bucephalandra 'mini'". No mention of any other details though. Worth sending a DM to them. They do look great in the pictures!

I really have no idea of what type of Bucephalandra I am growing ~ of the 2 types I'm growing, one has a small form & the other type has a larger form. Acquired 2 different types to play around with several years ago from a friend in Germany. Photos below will give you an idea to the size differences. I guess the "go to source" for Bucephalandra information would be AROId.com (The Genus Bucephalandra). Basic information can be found here: The Aquatic Plant Society ? The World of Bucephalandra (this article was written in 2014 - maybe a bit out of date - things definitely change quickly, but it states that there are only three recognized species).









Late note: I need to go back and clean up (and/or delete) some of my threads on this site to remove the 3rd party photobucket warnings. It takes some time and effort to do that.

I have a lot of a buce that might be the same one. It looks very similar (like a lot of buces!). Try looking at some pics of Bucephalandra Sintang.

Here's a few pics. Now that I see the pictures loaded and compare they look like different shaped leaves.
