Dennerle Pogostemon stellatus Broaf Leaf In-Vitro
Pogostemon species are now very popular in aquatics, especially in aquascaping. The older designation Eusteralis stellata is still more commonly found commercially. Pogostemon stellatus is a very variable species with a variety of leaf shapes and colours. The name ‘Broad Leaf‘ refers to the appearance of the wider leaf shape. Interestingly this variety is not as sensitive as the stem form, which frequently forms stunted shoot tips. Very good lighting, a constant CO2 supply and intense fertilisation of the water guarantee lush, colourful plants in an underwater landscape.
