Pogostemon Helferi Red Downoi also known as “Little Star” is a very attractive foreground and mid ground plant. This plant likes co2, micro and macro nutrients, as well as good lighting. It produces side shoots which can be trimmed and planted but, care should be taken not to bruise the plant when doing so. This is a nice addition to your aquarium. Pogostemon Helferi Red Downoi is a very rare plant that can get very red if the conditions are right. Pogostemon Helferi Red Downoi is like the green form but is a little more difficult to acclimate to your tank.
What You Get:
Most of our plants are all aquarium plants, that is when you receive your plants they will have already gone through the transformation process. The transformation the plant has to go through is difficult if all the plants requirements are not met. We do that for you, when you receive your plant it is ready for submersed growing. Submersed growth will look a lot different from the emerged growth, of a terrestrial grown plant. Know what you’re buying, and buy quality.
We now have over 350 species growing underwater in our aquariums. Our plants are ready to grow, already transformed aquarium plants. You don’t have to go through the transforming process from terrestrial plants to aquarium plants, we’ve done that for you. Just like fish, live plants do best when they are kept in an aquarium that best suits their needs. Selecting live plants that share common water conditions will minimize problems and make it easier for you to maintain and keep your aquarium in tip top shape. We want your plant to thrive and become a favorite part of your tank. Be sure to choose plants that are suitable for your aquarium so you will get the most out of your new addition.
