Pogostemon helferi AKA Dr Seuss Plant (Downoi) SALE
AS OF 9.2.21 THE PLANT LOOKS LIKE PHOTOS 2-5.
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!.
This plant is spectacular. It looks great in the tank. I bought 4 and spread them out. Only regret with this purchase is that I didn't buy more.
My dr. Suess plant didn't look as beautiful as the picture. It was actually kinda sad looking. But I bought it just for the snails to enjoy and they will but it wont last nearly as long as my other plants from you. I got a hungry snail.
I have been looking for pogoatemon helferi for some time now. It seems my lfs is unable to bring it in. I ordered two plants from Dustin. Both arrived well packaged and in great shape.
This would be a five star review but I can never order it because it is always sold out. 😒 Hoping it comes back... Been looking for it on this site for months to no avail. Dustin please get it back! I want to buy it!!!
Couldn't be happier, plants came in fast and healthy!
