Eusteralis Stellata, also known as Pogostemon Stellata, is a beautiful aquatic plant that has the ability to display a wide array of different colors ranging from green to red to pink. Its thin and pointy leaves grow in opposite pairs along the whole length of the stem. If pruned frequently, this aquarium plant will branch out and provide a bushy filler for the midground or background of your tank.
While it is an easy aquatic plant, high lighting and nutrient levels are essential in order to achieve and maintain vivid colors. High iron content will also help in the reddening of this plant and CO2 aids in speeding up growth but is not required.
Propagation can be achieved by taking cuttings from the main stem of the aquatic plant and replanting in quality substrate such as Marfied Controsoil.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro by laboratories who specialize in propagating aquatic plants. There is a huge selection of plant species that have been propagated this way. This is truly the best option for those who want absolutely zero unwanted pests, algae and pesticides. This makes them perfect for shrimp keepers and any planted tank enthusiasts alike.
NOTE: It is important to remove the tissue culture agar gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away, divide, and plant.
