Aquatic Tissue Culture Plants
Tissue culture plants are propagated in sterile packages where they grow in non-toxic, germ- and pest-free environments. Complete Aquatic Systems owns and operates our own tissue culture lab thus giving us total control over the varieties and quantities produced. Another benefit to having our own lab is that we don't have any middlemen to deal with.
Originating from the Western Indian State of Maharashtra, Pogostemon erectus plants have become popular in American and European aquariums. The plant is similar to R. verticillaris and R. Mexicana when grown submersed, but with the more vertical growth and a larger size. Pogostemon erectus emersed can be recognized by its decorative spikes of purple flowers.

About Pogostemon Erectus
Given plenty of CO2 and light, this plant shouldn’t stunt, although variations may cause changes in leaf texture and thickness. Pogostemon erectus emersed plants provide purple flowers. When submersed, they make wonderful aquarium background plants. These versatile plants can also be used as focal plants in small or large groups. They are especially attractive when placed near red or magenta plants.
Because Pogostemon erectus grows multiple side shoots, propagating the plant is very easy. Simply cut the shoots and plant them.
