Aquarists in Thailand, close to the border with Burma, discovered this plant. It is called ‘Downoi’ (little star) in Thailand, and it is easy to see why (5-10 cm tall and wide). Pogostemon helferi is an unusual and distinctive aquatic plant with a compact habit, curly leaves and a strikingly beautiful green colour.

With good light conditions and a nutrient-rich substrate, Pogostemon helferi forms many side shoots that develop small roots, and the plant rapidly forms an impressive carpet of foreground vegetation.

Also called “daonoi” or “downoi” (Thai for “litte star”), Pogostemon helferi has been known to science for over 120 years, however, it was only discovered for aquaristic purposes in 1996, by Nonn Panitvong and Arthit Prasartkul, who found it in the Thai province Kanchanaburi, on the border to Myanmar. Within only a short period, P. helferi has become a very popular aquarium plant for the fore- and middleground.
These authors found the species on a fast-flowing river with limestone ground. The plants grow on and between rocks, submersed for most of the rainy season in summer, and often in a strong current. During autumn and winter, the populations of P. helferi fall dry and form upright shoots with striking flower spikes typical for the genus Pogostemon.
