Bucephalandra "buce" Kedagang
Bucephalandra sp. "Kedagang" is a relatively small, fascinating Bucephalandra variant which is quite long known but still rare in the hobby.. The longish, arching leaves with rippled margin grow to a length of around 4 - 5,5 cm and to a width of 0.8 - 1,2 cm. The leaf stalk is about 0,6 - 1 cm long. The upper side of the leaf is dark brown to green with a blueish shine and a lot of tiny silvery dots. The leaf underside is of a silvery white to pale purple. The rhizome tips and the young leaf stalks are wine red. The rhizome has a creeping to ascending growth habit and branches readily. Thus the plant will grow into a large group over time. In the aquarium it flowers only very seldom.
In comparison with other Bucephalandra variants, "Kedagang" is a rather "fast" grower.
