If Dr. Seuss had a tank...this would be in it.

Want a wicked looking foreground plant?  This is it.  This plant is a wild one, and we don't have it often.

Curly leaves that Stay Short.  This might be one of the most UNIQUE Foreground plants we have ever carried.   It's wild look will make a great contrast to a low carpet of round plants like baby tears, or a grass mat like a dwarf sag.

I have seen it get about 3 inches or so tall. You can pull stems off and replant to propagate it.

NOTE: I would advise that you are successfully keeping some intermediate plants before jumping on this one.   (This shouldn't be your first aquarium plant :)

We have found Pogostemon helferi to be a HEAVY root feeder. This plants likes above average light as well.

On a scale of 1 being grows in your toilet, 10 being impossible.  This is about a 6.5  Substrate is key here. You can see the roots on these plants... they want food where they eat!.

Great plants

Couldn't be happier, plants came in fast and healthy!

Love my plant

I love my Dr. Suess plant. I can't wait to see it grow in my tank. Shipping was quick and the plant arrived in great shape.

Pogostemon Helferi

Ordered 2 pots and they arrived healthy. This is not a beginner plant but has been doing well for it's first week in my high-tech tank. I would order again without question.

Hopefully it will grow more

Plant came very light in color and very small. Doesn't look like it was thriving where it was growing at your greenhouse. Very hopeful though because I have an established planted tank that it can take root in.


Little guy, but super cute! Hopefully it does okay in the tank!
