Pogostemon Stellata folks. I would love to tell you this is an easy beginner plant. It is not. This plant is visibly demanding of more nutrients than your average plant. (We recommend our Growth Juice Fertilizer in higher dosage for this plant)
Pogostemon Stellata also enjoys as much high light and perhaps CO2 as you can give it. Although, I have seen it perform really well in moderate conditions as well!
You will get at least 5 stems in a portion. We recommend separating the stems for better growth. This is a stunning background plant.
I don't typically carry these plants as they require more work on our part as well.
The Purple photos are what it looks like the day we got it in. You can see that lighter green is what it looks like as of 10-9-17. It has adapted well to good underwater growth!
YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED with this plant.
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!
