Bucephalandra Green Velvet exhibits broad, elongated leaves that showcase a vibrant shade of green. The leaf shape is often lanceolate or obovate, with gently undulating edges. Its unique leaf texture and coloration create a visually appealing and captivating appearance in the aquarium.
When planting Bucephalandra, gently attach it to rocks or driftwood using thread or glue, or by carefully pressing into an existing natural crevice or crack.

This plant benefits from regular water circulation to maintain optimal health.
As a relatively slow-growing plant, Bucephalandra Green Velvet requires minimal pruning and maintenance. Regularly remove any dead or decaying leaves to keep the plant in its prime condition.
