Pogostemon Erectus Tissue Culture (small cup)
Common Name: Pogostemon Erectus
Pogostemon Erectus is a unique looking stem plant with pointy thin leaves growing from the center stem. This is a great background plant that has bright green coloration and can really grab a viewers attention when grown in a thick bush. To achieve bushy growth, consistent trimming and replanting should be done as new shoots grow and branch out where stems are cut.
Pogostemon Erectus is not the easiest aquarium plant to grow, so we recommend this one for hobbyists with more experience growing high-tech stem plants. Good lighting, CO2 and fertilizing with a specialized formula meant for aquarium plants is preferred to help Pogostemon Erectus thrive.
