Originating from Australia the Pogostemon stellatus is unusual yet very attractive. It has long firm stems with closely packed leaf whorls and intensely coloured leaf tips.
This plant is tricky to grow in aquariums and requires lots of attention. High CO2 and light levels are a must along with constant nutrition. If you get this right though you will be rewarded with great growth, so much so you will have to trim once it reaches the water surface.
