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.

Arrived slightly damaged but planted anyway. More damaged one was eaten by fish in day 1. Second larger plant was gone by the second morning.

Update from my previous review. I was right this plant needed more light and fertiliser to grow at all in my tall tank. Increased lighting to 3 x 24w t5 and started to dose Neutro+. About 6 weeks after making these changes I now have a dense clump about 150mm tall and wide. It’s stunning and is my favourite plant so far. Try it for yourself but it must be fed and lit well.

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?


Always remove plants from their pots prior to planting
