Anubias "White"

It's not a Bucephalandra, but it also belongs to the Araceae family and looks very interesting, so I allowed myself to insert a description here :)

I would like to present one of the most controversial plant in recent times: 
Anubias "White"

Why it is controversial? Because within few aquarists these white leaves raise admiration, others think it's disgusting. Some people say that white-green leaves look weak and sick, as if they were covered with algae. Personally, I think that it is a very interesting plant and it may allow to create a fabulous arrangement together with other, darker plants. 

Because the leaves are white plant needs more light to accelerate its slow growth. It is helpful to bury the plant into the fertilizer substrate. Young seedlings and their leaves are completely white. 

Over time, the leaves continue to darken and green spots are more visible. Belong to small Anubias variations.
