Pogostemon helferi – Tropica 1-2 Grow! Tissue Culture

Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.

This plant was discovered by aquarists in Thailand, close to the border with Burma. It is called ‘Downoi’ (little star) in Thailand, and it is easy to see why (5-10 cm tall and wide). Pogostemon helferi is an unusual and distinctive aquatic plant with a compact habit, curly leaves and a strikingly beautiful green colour.

With good light conditions and a substrate rich in nutrients Pogostemon helferi forms many side shoots, which develop small roots, and the plant rapidly forms an impressive carpet of foreground vegetation.
