In nature, Bucephalandra usually grows on rocks or wood in rivers and streams - much like Anubias, which they resemble regarding use and care in the aquarium. Bucephalandra is an easy, slow-growing plant that can do well lower light levels. A nice, dense appearance is ensured by the willingness to branch, even without trimming. The creeping stem, rhizome, must not be covered when planting. This will cause the plant to rot and die.
