Question about buce growth pattern

I just got a starter pack of buce and I'm trying to anticipate how it's going to fill in. A lot of the pieces of rhizome have roots on one end and a growing point with leaves at the other. If I situate this horizontally on a rock is it going to grow leaves (eventually - we're low tech over here) all up and down the rhizome, or just continue from the growing point at the end? If I rhizome has no leaves but is otherwise firm and healthy is it likely to grow leaves?

What kinds did you get? You really can't predict how the leaves will grow and they can pop up anywhere. Just know that are slowgrowers. And yes, if the rhizome has no leaves just leave it and it will recover. I had the same thing with one of my and it is showing green shoots after a couple of weeks.

They sent me 'Red Cherry', 'Brownie Hermes', 'Purple Blue, 'Solid Blue Malawi', and 'Little Dagger'. I'm not normally a random sampler pack kind of person, but with buce it really wasn't clear to me how different one cultivar would be from another, especially given my low tech set up where I don't expect them to color up like they would in a high energy tank. Still, this seems like a fair mix and some of the portions were quite large, so I really feel like I have a lot of material to play with and maybe in the end I'll be able to tell them apart. They are already putting out new leaves, so that's promising.

Either there's lots more new varieties been developed lately, or sellers are having fun with the names! I don't recognize any of those.

I really treat them all like they're the same species (and for all I know, they could be variants of). I tend to put them up high in low tech tanks and let them grow and spread. A little air touching them seems to speed this, but as soon as they break surface they seem to want to grow emergent so be prepared to lean the stick, rock, whatever deeper down as they do. I also have never heard of these trade names. Nothing happens fast with Buce, just be patient and if they seem to stagnate a little air can bring them the CO2 that they seem to crave. I can tell you that in high tech tanks, they actually grow pretty respectably. Maybe faster than Anubias, though that's no cheetah to compare to.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
