Bucephalandra is a plant native to Borneo, Indonesia. This rheophyte plant flourishes over stones and rocks usually in areas where there is a prolonged period between dry periods and flooding. In appearance and in the growing pattern the Bucephalandra is very similar to the Anubias of Western Africa. This plant has a very strong root that latches onto the smooth surface of the stones and rocks.
Bucephalandra is a relatively undemanding plant that grows and reproduces very slowly. It can be attached to rocks or driftwood or held in place by weights or planted in coarse substrate.
