Pogostemon helferi


I recently obtained a single stalk of this plant-- anyone have any advice outside of good lighting and CO2 (which is has right now)?

make sure you have a fertile substrate or insert some root tabs underneath. Keep the water cool as well.
They are fairly easy plants.

There are probably less than 20 people in the States with this plant. It just doesn't like to be shipped.
