The Kedakang Buce Plant is a deeply colorful variety that thrives in aquariums, paludariums, vivariums, and terrariums!

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

Like most plants, Kedakang 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.

 

This listing is for the tissue culture form of Kedakang Buce Plant. Tissue cultures are superior to traditional forms of aquarium plants in many ways. They are produced in a completely sterile environment which eliminates the possibility of them carrying pest snails or algae spores. They have a shelf life (before introduction to the aquarium) of several months if properly maintained and they are housed in a nutrient gel until introduced to the aquarium. To introduce a tissue culture plant to the aquarium, simply rinse off as much nutrient gel as possible, then plant as usual. The nutrient gel will not harm your aquarium. 

 

Packaging may vary. Tissue Culture plants may arrive in bag or cup form.

      Shipping Schedule for this service

      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.
