VIEW POLICY

Pogostemon Helferi 'Downoi' also known as 'Dao Noi' which means "little star" in Thailand. This plant was discovered by aquarists in Thailand and is commonly known as 'Downoi' in the United States. Pogostemon Helferi is an unusual and distinctive aquatic plant with a compact habit, curly leaves, and a strikingly beautiful green color. With good light conditions and a substrate rich in nutrients, Pogostemon Helferi can turn in red color and forms many side shoots, which develop small roots, and the plant rapidly forms an impressive carpet of foreground vegetation. 

  • Sold as Bare-root Plants or Potted Plants
  • Young plants grow in a controlled laboratory environment

        I was pleasantly surprised. The plants arrived better than pictured. Many individual plants per order (I got 6). This nicely fills out the space I want them in. Unlike my last order from another vendor, these had nice roots and many leaves. APF is gonna be my one stop shopping place going forward!

        Very healthy when it arrived. Has been growing nicely for the last month. A couple stems rotted but no big deal just replanted the top portion. Good amount for price

        Beautiful plants

        They are beautiful plants. They are in bright green color. The Shapes of the leaves provider distinct look in the aquarium. Lots of stems in the pots. I split them up. Easily rooted.

        Beautiful Plant

        I bought 2 potted Pogostemon Helferi Dao Nois, they arrived perfectly healthy, bright green colors and multiple heads. I could make a great coverage with the little stars. Amazing plant.
