Default Bucephalandra Flowering

Here is a picture of a "Blue" Bucephalandra flowering. This is one of the plants I got from Alex purchased by the club.

Very Nice! I so want to try Buce but I'm always turned off by the prices. Someday maybe.

The small plant next to the Blue Buce is another type of Buce that really hasn't done much except get a little BBA around the edges of the leaves. I am treating it with an Excel dip to see if it stops the BBA. I will get with Alex and we will see if we can identify the type of Buce. Extremely slow grower though. I will try to get a better pic tomorrow.

Mine hasn't sent off a new plant yet but here is a pic of my Buce garden from the top looking down. Not very clear but will try again tomorrow.

In the upper right hand corner of the last picture, you can see a good example of a young Ludwigia Inclinata "Cuba". Of the 4 species of Ludwigias I ordered, I think I only got 3 different species : L. Inclinata Cuba, L. Glandulosa and L. Inclinata. I'm still not sure about the L. Ovalis. It appears to be Inclinata. They are still growing out of their emersed states.

That looks good when you get enough of it I would like to get some and see what it will do in my tank.
