Bolbitis comes from West Africa, a fern with beautiful, transparent green leaves, 15-40 cm tall and wide. When planting, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot, and it is best to plant Bolbitis heudelotii on a root or stone. Keep the plant in position with fishing line until it has gained a hold. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome. Supply of CO2 will considerably enhance the growth, which is only optimal in soft, slightly acidic water.
This decorative, large and narrow-leaved Bucephalandra variant is produced in an Indonesian water plant nursery under the trading name "Kapuas Hulu", apparently referring to the Kapuas Hulu region in West Kalimantan. However its species belonging is unknown to us, but as well as all Bucephalandras, it originates from Borneo island, growing as a rheophyte (adapted to strong current) on rock in the flood zone of rainforest streams. Bucephalandra sp. "Kapuas Hulu" has oblanceolate, about 9 cm long, dark-green leaves with red-brown stalks on a strong rhizome.
