Maybe it's a silly question, but how bucephs. know that is time to flower?
In Bornéu maybe it's easier, the rain season is ending (i believe).
But in my tank, placed in complete dark place (no natural light) and water parameters the same all year...
How do they know? by the moon? some kind of memory?
Always thought that plants can sense the sun, temperature and water chemistry changes.
Anyway just a thought...
this bucephalandra is very slow, i think the most difficult that i have.
Rooting is also more dificult to grab to the hardscape (comparing with others).
Once adapted to the tank my bucephalandras that flower once keep flowering in regular basis!
Tom Barr described this behaviour, with good conditions flowering will be regular.
Superb tank, congrats! I've seen you have two outlets, one at the bottom with the jet directly pointing to the carpet in the foreground and the other near the tank surface. I guess the one attached to the inline co2 diffuser/reactor is the one at the bottom, isn't it?
Jordi, you spot the scheme!
One more detail, on the top (which is the main filter) the are 2 outlets.
Thinner tubes for giving a bit stronger flow and they can be ajust [left-right] and [surface or substrate]!
I can easily configure the flow direction to adjust some evaporation or maintenance (is very useful)!
The big pipe below is now consensual... I believe that i use 1/2 to 1/4 of the Co2 with this configuration.
Finally found the scissors!
Maybe tomorrow another picture...
