Bucephalandra genus no doubt got a lot if attention lately from the aquatic plants hobbyists, it greats lots of demand in the aquatic market- bad news for the plant. This genus is a sibling to Cryptocoryne under Araceae family, but unlike Cryptocoryne; this genus relatively new to botanists and only three species are described so far left many without a name.
