Pogostemon stellatus, also known as Eusteralis stellata and Dysophylla stellata, is a beautiful species of plant that thrives in wetlands. It has fine-leaved stems with broad leaves or narrow ones. One of the narrow-leaf forms is partly labeled as P. stellatus "Strong" but it shares the same submerged foliage traits as other "normal" Pogostemon Stelatis plants do.
The water star is mostly delivered in its terrestrial form with light green leaves. Placed into an aquarium, it grows new shoots of very narrow, purple to reddish-purple leaves in whorls. The branches become more than 10 cm wide and are branched..
