    @RSS: nice seeing you again. long time no see!
    for the most part, they are indeed easy, no different than growing anubias, and like anubias, they prefer not to have their rhizomes buried. im growing mine on smaller pieces of lava rock which will make things much easier when propagation starts. some people state that they prefer lower lighting, but mine seem to do well with high lighting and CO2 injection, along with EI ferts. i believe the huge price tag come quite similar to reasons why certain species of neps are expensive-- 1) recent discovery and 2) habitat pressure (removal of habitat for urban expansion). It is very difficult to ascertain whether bucephalandra in circulation are legitimate undescribed species, variants, or hybrids. More often than not, they are given designations based on morphological appearances or location of discovery. They also apparently are easy to transition from submersed to emersed growth, but the emersed leave do not carry the same iridescent quality as their submerged counterparts.

    it should also be noted that these grow painfully slow which helps add to their price tag. you get a $60 plant and you grow it for years to end up with maybe 2x or 3x as much as when you started. its slower than anubias from what i hear.

    Well I'm blaming you for me ordering a few of Bucephalandras

    Took a bit of rooting around to find some in the US but they are available. They do have some nice flowers too.
