The competition for space between Bucephalandra & Piptospatha

In this jungle stream at Padawan, you can find 2 species of aroids growing in the stream: Bucephalandra motleyana & Piptospatha impolita. The Bucephalandra population here is very small cos it can't compete with the bigger aroid, Piptospatha

The small aroid on the foreground is Bucephalandra:

The Bucephalandra here is grey-greenish colored. And the stems are reddish colored.


The colour is a bit grey....

Bucephalandra motleyana (below) & Piptospatha impolita (top).

The Bucep. which grow closed to water edge got more darker leaves than the plants grow far away from water edge.

Some got round leaves....
