    Pogostemon Helferi

    Price:  £3.29

    Although scientists have been aware of this plant for a long time, aquatic hobbyists discovered it only a few years ago. Called 'Downoi' (Little Star) in Thailand, it is easy to see why. With highly decorative, rippled leaves it is definately one of the most beautiful foreground plants available. What first appears to be a rosette plant is actually a very stocky stem plant. If you create the ideal conditions (it is well worth trying to achieve it), this plant will produce a fantastic cushion for you. Bright to very bright light, temp 25C, and medium to hard water, under these conditions the leaves are a saturated green. One of the most stunning plants in the world.
