Pogostemon stellatus is one of the more difficult plants to grow as it has a very high demand on substrate fertilizers, micros (specifically iron) and requires high levels of CO2 supplementation. It also requires acidic water with low hardness levels. It does not fair well with DIY CO2 as there is either not enough carbon dioxide being produced or the level fluctuates too much for the plant to stabilize. Commonly known as Australian Hygro. It adds a unique color to an aquarium. The closer to the light it grow the more purple the plant becomes. It has a thick stem with 2-3 inch thin leaves. This plant is best kept in 3-5 stem groupings. Place each stem a few inches apart to allow room to grow. If planted too closely then the lower leaves will drop.

Propagation
Clip stems in 6 inch pieces, strip off the lower 1-2 inches of leaves, and plant in the substrate. Make sure to leave enough space between stems to avoid being shaded or shade those already rooted.
