LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Pogostemon stellatus "Narrowleaf" is also known under the synonym Eusteralis stellata in aquaristics. It originates from swamps in East and Southeast Asia as well as in northern Australia. A lot of very different varietys of this species are found in nature as its area of distribution is vast. Pogostemon stellatus is a breathtakingly beautiful plant, which has made it a very popular aquarium plant.
A beautiful fine-leaved relatively large stem plant from the Asian tropics. When cultivated under water, the star plant has very narrow leaves growing in whorls, with a green to reddish purple colour. It is often sold in its emerged form and will assume its final submersed form when cultivated under water. Pogostemon stellatus needs strong light (not less than 0.5 W/litre), the addition of CO2 and a good nutrient supply. Micronutrient deficiencies may lead to pale leaves. The plant is a good indicator for the nutrient situation in the tank. Pogostemon stellatus requires higher temperatures (approx. 24-28 °C) and soft to medium-hard water. Growth may stagnate from time to time even though the conditions are good.
