    Plant Sizes

    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.

    Pogostemon deccanensis is a beautiful and popular aquarium plant known for its unique shape and vibrant green color. Native to Southeast Asia, this plant is widely used in aquascaping due to its ability to provide an attractive backdrop for other aquatic plants and fish.

    Pogostemon deccanensis is a relatively easy plant to care for and maintain in an aquarium. It can grow up to 30 cm in height, and it requires moderate to high lighting to thrive. The plant prefers a nutrient-rich substrate, and regular fertilization can help promote healthy growth and development.

    One of the unique features of Pogostemon deccanensis is its distinctively upright and vertical growth habit, with narrow stems that are densely packed with leaves. This creates a beautiful, bushy effect in the aquarium, making it an ideal background plant for a variety of different aquascaping styles.

    In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Pogostemon deccanensis also provides important benefits to the aquarium ecosystem. Like all aquatic plants, it absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen, helping to improve water quality and promote healthy fish and invertebrate populations. Additionally, Pogostemon deccanensis can help to reduce algae growth by competing with algae for nutrients and light.

    Overall, Pogostemon deccanensis is a great choice for anyone looking to add a touch of natural beauty and ecological function to their aquarium. With proper care and attention, this plant can thrive in a wide range of aquarium setups, and it is sure to provide years of enjoyment for both the aquarium owner and their aquatic pets.

    Product details

    1. Grown in a laboratory

    Tissue Cultured Plants are unique in so much as they are grown in a laboratory and not a greenhouse. As a result of this, a cast iron guarantee is offered which is 100% so snails and no pesticides.

    2. How to handle them

    They're a bit different from potted plants because they're grown in an agae solution that contains nutrients and hormones to encrougage plants to grow. Some agar is liquid, others are more solid depending on what the growers prefers. Regardless once they arrive with you, acclimatise to room temperature and then rinse under luke warm tap water. Then plant up.

    3. Pot sizes

    Nearly all TC pots are 5cm in diameter and the pots will range in fullness depending on many factors such as the natural growth speed of the plant and the time the grower has held them for. Sometimes the pots are exceptionally full and sometimes not so full - something we cannot control. But either way, they're still really good value when you look at the overall plant mass.

    Arrived in excellent condition and easy to plant, this is already looking good in my 60l tank. A big plus you can split the plant into 6 pieces or less so your actually getting more than one plant for the price of one.

    Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

    Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

    We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
