    Can Pogostemon helferi tolerate shading?

    I am growing Pogostemon helferi under 1wpg T5 and all is going well.
    I want to move my crypt bullosa next to the helferi, but I know that eventually it will shade one edge of the helferi.

    Will this be OK?

    Has anyone grown Pogostemon helferi in the shade?
