Bucephalandra 'Kedagang' is beautiful and easy epiphyte plant perfect for all planted aquariums and aquascapes.... ( Read More )
Bucephalandra sp. "Kedagang" is a relatively small, fascinating Bucephalandra variant which is quite long known but still rare in the hobby. We have been cultivating Bucephalandra sp. "Kedagang" for more than five years in our tanks. The longish, arching leaves with rippled margin grow to a length of around 4 to 5.5 cm and to a width of 0.8 to 1.2 cm. The leaf stalk is about 0.6 to 1 cm long. The upper side of the leaf is dark brown to green with a blueish shine and a lot of tiny silvery dots. The leaf underside is of a silvery white to pale purple. The rhizome tips and the young leaf stalks are wine red. The rhizome has a creeping to ascending growth habit and branches readily. Thus the plant will grow into a large group over time. In the aquarium it flowers only very seldom.
In comparison with other Bucephalandra variants, "Kedagang" is a rather "fast" grower. It does not have high demands, but under medium to high light and a good CO2 supply and ample nutrient levels it is the most beautiful. I is best tied to rock or driftwood where it attaches itself by its roots.
Bucephalandra "Kedagang" arrives in gel solution inside the cup and requires to be carefully cleaned to remove the gel before planting.
Dry goods are dispatched daily and can take 1 to 5 working days to arrive.
Live fish, live plants, and frozen food require 2 to 7 working days or more due to special handling requirements.
All our live stocks are thoroughly tested and quarantined before packing and guaranteed to arrive free of tapeworms or diseases.
Important to note that small tropical fish and inverts lose color during transport and will arrive pale or white, a proper environment and diet is needed to regain coloration.
Any death or illnss of live animals after being added to an aquarium cannot be replaced or refunded. If such problems are encountered then it is connected to aquarium conditions or noncompatible tank mates (e.g. mixing with fish or plants from other sources).
Fish acclimation to a new aquarium is the sole responsibility of the buyer and not the Discus.ae delivery team.
