ADA Bucephalandra sp. Sintang Wabi Mat Box M

This nice epiphyte is undemanding, however it looks best with medium lighting and good CO2 and nutrient supply. In general, Bucephalandra species are notoriously slow growers, but "Bukit Kelam" makes an exception, growing relatively fast. Not seldom it flowers under water, the inflorescences have a white spathe. The submerged plant develops an upright, branched, stem-like rhizome with many "aerial" roots. Occasional cutting of long shoots promotes the branching of the stem, leading to beautiful dense bushes with many heads. The cuttings may be tightened to the hardscape and will attach themselves by their roots.

Wabi-Kusa Mat is an ADA’s aquatic plant product with moss and aquatic plants on a special mat. Taking advantage of its good state of plants taking roots, water permeability, and the ability to sink in water, it is used in various layouts.

This form of Bucephalandra pygmaea is found in Bukit Kelam in West Kalimantan and develops dense mats on stream boulders in the tropical rainforest. It is propagated by tissue culture and is available with the labels Bucephalandra sp. 'Wavy Leaf' and 'Green Wavy', also erroneously as B. sp. "Melawi". "Bukit Kelam" is one of the most known and popular Bucephalandras in the aquarium hobby. This medium-sized Bucephalandra has broadly spathulate, green to brownish-green, quite soft leaves which are about 5 cm long and 2 cm wide. The margin is more or less wavy, the leaf underside is whiteish green.

The emersed leaves are longer and more wavy than the submerged ones. Bucephalandra pygmaea "Bukit Kelam / Sintang" is surely very attractive in paludariums with damp air, suitable for the creation of rainforest stream biotopes.

Wabi mat

ADA’s plant products are devised consistently with the aim of offering better products. There are two points that have recently been improved in the Wabi-Kusa Mat. Although it is difficult to notice at first glance, it has changed greatly when in use. This time I would like to introduce the improvements.
Wabi-Kusa Mat is an ADA’s aquatic plant product with moss and aquatic plants on a special mat. Taking advantage of its good state of plants taking roots, water permeability, and the ability to sink in water, it is used in various layouts. In order to refine its ease of use, two further improvements were added. First, we devised the ingredients of raw materials when manufacturing mats and improved the pH fluctuations as much as possible. Even if it is used in a place with a small amount of water, it does not affect other living things. Secondly, it was improved to finish without using the thread that was necessary for attaching the moss. In the past, biodegradable thread was used, but a special production method was devised to keep moss evenly even without thread.
