    Pogostemon Stellatus (formally known as Eustralis)

    Price:  £3.29

    Pogostemon Stellata (formally known as Eusteralis) from Asia and Australia is distinguished by its beautiful shape and colour. Stems from 20-60 cm and up to 10 cm wide. It is difficult to grow in aquariums. It requires intensive light and a permanent supply of CO2 to grow well. The shortage of micronutrients leads to pale leaves, which may be an indication that the aquarium needs fertiliser. Even in good conditions growth sometimes stops suddenly. Plants in aquarium shops are generally low, compact plants grown in marshy conditions, and do not reveal their full glory until planted in the aquarium. As soon as the stems reach the waters surface you can remove the shoots and replant them. Note that the cut lower portion of the stem will continue to send out new shoots. A beautiful but demanding plant.
