Buce Red Mini is a farm-grown variant of Bucephalandra. This is a rare plant, and as the name suggests, it has tiny leaves that can develop a nice reddish-purple tint when grown submerged over a long period of time. Like all Buce, this plant grows extremely slow, and it can take almost half a year for this tissue culture cup to grow in. It can be propagated by cutting the rhizome and attached to driftwood and rocks using super glue gel or thread.
As you can see from the pictures, the amount of light and nutrients found in the water will determine what shades of colors your plants will show.
