This Bucephalandra variety develops deep purple leaves with proper care!


Brownie Purple Buce Plant (Bucephalandra¬†sp. ‚ÄúBrownie Purple‚ÄĚ) is a very attractive, unique variant of the extremely popular¬†Bucephalandra¬†group. It is a very hardy plant that can be grown emersed or submerged in the aquarium, terrarium, and paludarium. ¬†It requires only low to moderate lighting and can thrive in a variety of water parameters. With proper care,¬†Brownie Purple¬†Buce Plant will grow at a slow to moderate rate. The care of Buce plants is similar to¬†Anubias¬†and¬†Cryptocoryne¬†species. Also, like¬†Anubias, Buce plants are rhizome plants that attach to and grow on hard surfaces. This plant attaches particularly well to rocks, but can also grow very well on driftwood and other surfaces. If planted on the substrate, Buce plants should be only partially embedded in the substrate with the rhizome exposed. If the rhizome is buried, it is prone to rot.


In addition to its attractive appearance, Brownie Purple Buce Plant provides a valuable refuge for aquarium animals, especially dwarf shrimp, nano fish, and fry.  With proper care, Brownie Purple Buce Plant can easily flourish and grow to become a major centerpiece of the planted aquarium!


Like most plants, Brownie Purple Buce Plant will benefit from plant supplements. However, supplementation is not required for this plant to grow and stay healthy. Buce plants generally show their most intense coloration and optimal growth when submerged with high lighting and stable, consistent fertilization. Drastic changes in fertilization can result in gradual leaf loss, although the plant rhizome will typically recover in time.
