Pogostemon erectus (TC)
The Indian Pogostemon Erectus forms compact groups of bright green, conifer-like stems, 10-20 cm tall and 1-3 cm wide. Pogostemon Erectus is suitable as a background plant and creates a wonderful focal point in both smaller and larger groups. Intense light helps the plant to stay compact for a longer period. Moderate growth and vigorous roots.
When grown emersed this species will keep shorter leaves and even more contact growth. With bight light and minimal care it will bloom bright purple flowers that have a distinct aroma.
Difficulty: Easy, can even be grown as a potted house plant once acclimated.
