Pogostemon erectus is a new arrival form India. Growing up to 40cm in height and producing a beautiful bright green glow across its elegant needles. With enough light its a simple plant to grow, don't be afraid to radically prune it to make it grow thicker and more compact.

This plant looks great planted in Nordic Gravel and around a large piece of Redmoor wood.

Pogostemon are without doubt my favourite genus of quatic plants and these were delivered in excellent condition. This species makes a stunning background plant and will contrast nicely with some broad leaved plants.

Ask a question about this product
Is this really a foreground plant when it grows to 40cm?


Good question. although it grows to a decent height it looks much better when trimmed heavily and therefore acts and looks like a foreground plant.

will i need co2 for this plant i have a plant led strip and use sachem plant fertiliser.


not necessary, but always helps

Is it best to leave small plants in their pots or should they all be planted without?
