Part Number:DOWNOI

POGOSTEMON HELFERI also known as Downoi to most is one of the most beautiful foreground aquarium plants. It is an easy stem plant to grow, and propagate if you have the correct growing conditions.

Downoi will grow to 2 inches tall underneath high light but will grow slightly taller in moderate lighting conditions. It prefers a fertile substrate bed, at least moderate lighting, and some carbon dioxide to do well. Its growth rate is moderate for a stem plant.

Downoi forms many side shoots, which develop small roots, these side shoots can then be snipped off and replanted.

 You are buying one portion, approx 3 rooted stems.

I bought Pogostemon from many different suppliers in the past and have never received such healthy ones as I did at Planted Aquariums Central. I am so glad I found this store and can't recommend enough. Healthy Plants and Wonderful customer service. I ordered 1 day and they were sent the next. Have never had that happen before with aquarium plants online.

Best Downoi plants in the market. Nobody like PAC. Will buy again and again.... My plants are doing great and beginning to cover the bottom of my aquariums.

Quality Plants
I just started ordering plants online about a year ago and have since ordered from 6 different online stores. Planted Aquarium Central has landed in my #1 spot to order from in the future. The plants appear to have been grown submerged so melting should be minimal. I am very pleased with the quality, quantity, packaging and the speed in which my order was shipped. The Pogostemon Helferi they sent is very healthy. I highly recommend and will order from them again.

Cool plant
I originally came to this site because it was carrying downoi which I love. I ended up buying a lot of plants along with it as the prices and shipping couldn't be beat. I was a little disappointed at first to receive tall downoi like I hadn't seen before. I assume it was grown emersed, but I'm not sure. It's been almost a month now though and it's started to get growth on the bottom and the top, so I think I should be able to trim it down so it's not very tall. So it's been ugly submersed but it is fixable. That said, I am glad I could find this and the plant I received was healthy. This is a great price if you don't mind a little work at shortening it without killing it.
