Pogostemon Stellata “Octopus”
We have really come a long way with this plant. We used to think it wasn't as hardy as others, but now, after a year of keeping it, it isn't as demanding as we had once thought.
A very similar plant with a purple hue would be eustralis stellata!!!!!!
I run this in my friend's aquariums and you can see it kind of over ran the aquarium. It was under one of our "Standard Double LEDs" however it didn't have that great of substrate.
This plant will give you a long flowing look which is a nice contrast to tall and long background plants like Jungle Val.
Grab some Pogostemon Stellata and take the colors of your aquarium to the next level.
I would definitely call this plant an Intermediate Plant. Worth your time to look at and an incredible addition to any tank. I suggest this for someone with a moderate lighting and nutrient set up. On a scale from 1 to 10. 1 being you can grow it in a toilet and 10 being impossible. I give Pogostemon Stellata a 3.5. Because it doesn't like change!. So it has to resettle in it's environment!
Don't Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!
Plants are great
I've had this plant before and although the leaves are more delicate, I don't find it a difficult plant to keep. It will take off in no time. Great for shy or baby fish.
I got this plant a few months back and at first it was staying small then after awhile and out of no where took off like a rocket and grew to be this beautiful plant that just rules one side of my 75 gallon tank. I would recommend this plant to everyone since when the water is flowing you can see it’s beautiful leaves flowing with the current (it’s on the far left) all the plants in my tank are from Dustin’s and all of them are incredibly healthy and beautiful
I love this plant! Plants arrived healthy and are thriving in my aquarium. They are so delicate looking but nothing could be further from the truth. They are very hardy and when overgrown, you can trim them and start new plants that then also take off.
