Description: Pogostemon Stellata is distinguished by it’s shape, and stunning colour. difficult to grow in aquariums, it requires intense lighting and CO2 to grow well. A shortage of micronutrients will lead to pale leaves, indicating that fertilizer needs to be dosed. in some cases, even in good conditions, growth can stop suddenly. plants in shops are generally low, compact plants grown in marshy conditions, and therefore, will not display their full glory until planted in the aquarium.
