The Pogostemon Helferi is an unusual, yet beautiful, foreground plant for aquariums. Its unique look is due to the curled appearance and dark green shade of its leaves. Thailand locals named this plant “dao noi,” meaning, “little star.”

Its natural habitat is in riverbeds, from Thailand’s border with Burma, and living both submerged and partially immersed.

With good light conditions and a nutrient-rich substrate, Pogostemon helferi forms many side shoots that develop small roots, and the plant rapidly forms an impressive carpet of foreground vegetation.
