Pogostemon Stellatus is a beautiful aquarium stem plant that can be quite difficult to cultivate in a planted aquarium setting. Featuring bold coloration, Pogostemon Stellatus offers good background coverage, both horizontal and vertical, if successful in keeping it alive. This particular aquarium stem plant requires intensive lighting along with CO2 injection, quality aquarium soil, and consistency in water parameters. A regular fertilizing regiment may also improve growth and coloration. If successful, Pogostemon Stellatus is a treat to see and is loved for its unique, delicate appearance and contrast it provides when grouped with other leaf textures.

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.
