Pogostemon erectus

Pogostemon erectus was originally collected in Maharashtra, India. It has become an extremely popular plant for aquariums with supplemental CO2 and moderate or better light. With these in place, it is an extremely vigorous aquarium plant, despite its delicate, feathery foliage. If anything, it can be a little too fast growing in a tank with heavy fertilization.
