Although scientists have been aware of this plant for a long time, aquatics hobbyists discovered it only a few years ago. With highly decorative, rippled leaves it is probably one of the most beautiful foreground plants available. What first appears to be a rosette plant is actually very stocky stem plant. If you create the ideal conditions, Pogostemon helferi will produce a fantastic cushion for you: good to strong light, temperatures around 25°C, moderate-hard water. Under these conditions the leaves are a saturated green.
