Found in Bukit Kelam in West Kalimantan, the Bucephalandra pygmaea 'Green Wavy' develops dense mats on stream boulders in the tropical rainforest. It is propagated by tissue culture and has broadly spathulate, green to brownish-green, quite soft leaves which are about 5cm long and 2cm wide. The margin is more or less wavy, the leaf underside is whiteish green.
This epiphyte is undemanding, however it looks best with medium lighting and good CO2 and nutrient supply. In general, the Bucephalandra species are notoriously slow growers but the Bucephalandra pygmaea 'Green Wavy' makes an exception, growing relatively fast. Not seldom it flowers underwater, the inflorescences have a white spathe. The submerged plant develops and upright, branched, stem-like rhizome with many "aerial" roots. Occasional cutting of long shoots promotes the branching of the stem, leading to beautiful dense bushes with many heads. The cuttings may be tightened to the hardscape and will attach themselves by their roots.
