Pogostemon deccanensis


Pogostemon deccanensis is a very delicate plant from India. This stem plant produces very elegant needles in a beautiful light green. It is not very difficult to cultivate if you provide enough light and CO2. For aquascaping purposes, this Indian beauty mixes very well with red or brown-hued plants. It grows at moderate speed. Feel free to radically prune a group of plants - the stems will soon produce new side shoots, and your plants will be thicker and more compact.
