DESCRIPTION

Pogostemon stellatus is a stem plant with closely packed leaf whorls and intensely colored leaf tips. It is most frequently found in Asia and Australia, where it grows in marshy and swampy areas and sometimes at altitudes greater than 2,000 m. Aquarium cultivation is very difficult and requires soft water to promote decent growth. Strong light, a permanent supply of CO2, and good nutrition are also indispensable. As soon as the stems reach the water’s surface you can remove the shoots and replant them. Note that the cut lower portion of the stem will continue to send out new shoots.
