This plant was discovered by aquarists in Thailand, close to the border with Burma. It is called 'Downoi' (little star) in Thailand, and it is easy to see why (5-10 cm tall and wide).

Pogostemon helferi is an unusual and distinctive aquatic plant with a compact habit, curly leaves and a strikingly beautiful green colour. With good light conditions and a substrate rich in nutrients Pogostemon helferi forms many side shoots, which develop small roots, and the plant rapidly forms an impressive carpet of foreground vegetation.

The plants arrived healthy with a nice green colour however plant melted as soon as it hit the water in my tank, even with I c02. I thought it would be a good choice as I have hard water which it likes. Only tiny stuffs of newly emerging leaves are left so only time will tell if it takes.
