Product Information

This plant was discovered by aquarists in Thailand, close to the border with Burma. It is called 'Downoi' (little star) in Thailand, and it is easy to see why (5-10 cm tall and wide). Pogostemon helferi is an unusual and distinctive aquatic plant with a compact habit, curly leaves and a strikingly beautiful green colour.

With good light conditions and a substrate rich in nutrients Pogostemon helferi forms many side shoots, which develop small roots, and the plant rapidly forms an impressive carpet of foreground vegetation.

Key Features:

  • Considered medium difficulty to grow
  • Distinctive curly leaves
  • Medium growth rates
  • Reaches heights of 3-10cm+
  • Medium light demand of 0.5W/L
  • Medium CO2 demand of 6-14mg/L
