Description

A relatively wide-leaved well-growing form of Pogostemon stellatus probably from northern Australia or New Guinea. It is easier to cultivate than the narrow-leaved "standard form" of P. stellatus.

Pogostemon stellatus 'Broad Leaf' is one of the manifold geographical varieties of the very wide-spread species P. stellatus. It has only recently become known in the hobby, however, its stunning colour and overall beauty increase its popularity continuously, and nowadays it is quite often used for setting up layouts in aquascapes.
According to the "Plant Finder" on aquaticplantcentral.com, P. stellatus 'Broad Leaf' originates from Papua New Guinea, the large island to the north of Australia. In Northern Australia, a very similar broad-leaved Pogostemon variety is found, which has been imported to Europe under the name "Adelaide River". It is still in the dark whether this plant is also in cultivation under the name 'Broad Leaf', and if it differs from the plant that is cultivated as 'Broad Leaf' in the US (see pic. 1) and is said to also originate from Papua-New Guinea.

Lots of plants and good growth
29th November 2017

You get a lot of plantlets in each pot and mine came in looking very healthy. Within a week they are now racing up towards the light, fed on quality fertiliser and Co2. (read more)
