The Brownie Blue Buce Plant is a very popular and lovely Bucephalandra variety!

Brownie Blue Buce Plant (Bucephalandra sp. “Brownie blue”) 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 Blue 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 Blue Buce Plant provides a valuable refuge for aquarium animals, especially dwarf shrimp, nano fish, and fry.  With proper care, Brownie Blue Buce Plant can easily flourish and grow to become a major centerpiece of the planted aquarium!

Like most plants, Brownie Blue Buce Plant will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Nitrogen and other 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. 

No aquarium plant distributor/nursery/wholesaler/retailer can or will guarantee their plants to be 100% snail free. We can not guarantee our plants will be snail free.

        Shipping Schedule for this service

        UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday
         

        Current Handling Time:

        1-9 business days

        Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

        Shipping Rate

        Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
