Bucephalandra Balloon (Bucep / Buce plant) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae. There are more than 30 species of Bucephalandra that have been discovered mostly by S.Y. Wong and P.C. Boyce. Most of the species are found in Borneo. Bucephalandra is usually found growing as dense mats over stones or rocks in streams or rivers in moist tropical forests. The colors of the leaf range from dark blue to green, often with white, yellow, red tinges or spots on the back of the leaves. Bucephalandra grows best when attached to the stone, rock, or driftwood.

        Heathy, gorgeous leaves!

        I purchased this in my second order with the company. All three types of plants (Anubias and two buce) were fabulous specimens! They arrived well packaged, generous portions, and were in excellent condition. These were hands down the BEST plants I’ve ever purchased, both online and in person! They didn’t pay me for this review, and I’ll definitely be a returning customer!


        I couldn't add one more to buy 2 at the time I put order, I'd love order more tho! They are great and strong. Packaged and shipped very well! I divided them into little pieces and put them on the wood.

        Shipped great — healthy looking plants!

        I ordered this using the 2 for 3 special, expecting to get 3 plants. I got 9 or 10! They were well packaged and looked healthy, even after almost a full week in the mail. I will definitely opt for faster shipping next time; standard mail was too anxiety-inducing, even though the plants made it intact.
