Pogostemon helferi

Does anyone know of a good on-line source to purchase some Pogostemon Helferi? I have only purchased from www.aquariumplants.com and they do not seem to carry it.

Always willing to buy from folks here, however I live in Minnesota and plants needs to be shipped in Styrofoam boxes with heat packs. Not too many people here can accommodate. High today was around 5 degrees F.

Hi Dx3Bash,

You have very good taste; Pogostemon helferi (Downoi) is a great plant but it can be challenging to grow.

I 've been selling them every month. They don't look that hard to grow. Just need a nutritious substrate, somewhat medium to high light (mine is 3Watts/gallon with a depth of 12 inch. Weekly dose of micro and macro is a plus and Co2 stimulates growth.

Have about 3 crowns left at the moment. Contact me if you need those.
