Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Our Delivery Promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.



If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Pogostemon erectus is a popular aquatic plant commonly found in aquariums. It is native to Asia, specifically in the areas of India, Thailand, and Indonesia. This plant is highly valued for its unique and distinctive appearance, making it a popular choice for aquascaping enthusiasts.

Pogostemon erectus is a fast-growing plant that requires moderate to high light intensity and CO2 supplementation to thrive. Its tall and slender stems can reach up to 3cm in height, and it features numerous narrow, green leaves that grow in whorls along the length of the stem.

One unusual fact about Pogostemon erectus is that it is believed to have medicinal properties. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, the leaves of the plant are used to treat various ailments, including cough, fever, and respiratory infections. Additionally, Pogostemon erectus is believed to have antimicrobial properties, which may make it effective in treating certain types of infections.

In addition to its potential health benefits, Pogostemon erectus is also known for its ability to improve water quality in aquariums. This plant is known to absorb excess nutrients and organic waste, which can help to reduce the growth of algae and improve the overall health of fish and other aquatic life. Best planted in groups of three or more and does particularly well if planted near red plants which offer a beautiful contrast.
