This plant has a new botanical assignment and thus a new name. It belongs to the group of small stature species with linear and curled leaves such as B. belindae, B. catherineae and B. mircantha. The variety ‘Needle Leaf‘ is extremely slow growing and particularly suitable for filigree aquascaping landscapes. As with all Bucephalandra species, it is very easy to care for. Inserting small algae cleaners, such as Amano shrimp or Clithon snails, is recommended.

The leaves and roots, of the plantlets in this gel culture, were visibly smaller than the other Bucephalandra that I had ordered. Nice, tiny healthy plants :)
