Pogostemon stellatus- Broad leaf –Purple is a beautiful aquatic stem plant. The thin and pointy leaves grow in opposite pairs along the whole length of the stem. If trimmed frequently, this plant will branch out and provide a bushy filler for the mid- or background of your tank. This is an easy plant but to get the desirable bright purple color, you must provide high lighting and nutrient levels. High iron content will bring out more red tones in the plant. CO2 injection is not required for the cultivation of this plant, but can help it grow more robustly. The plant can be grown submersed or emersed. Propagation can be achieved by taking Stem cuttings.
