    how rare is Pogostemon Helferi to find in the trade?
    how much would you pay for 4 heads?
    exactly how big would 4 heads be?

    I think it is a plant that is fast becoming quite popular, and is on my list of plants I must have a try with. I have seen it quoted as growing 10cm in width, but in good conditions I bet it can get wider and be used for carpetting.

    Greenline sell it, but you might get lucky with somebody off this forum donating some.

    Fairly rare in LFS, but available from Tropica stockists.

    Not sure on size, the Tropica site will tell you, and their demands too.

    One pot will have more than four heads I would say. Expect to pay no more than £5 or so.

    I'm going to be using this as well hopefully. Looks great in a carpet form along with HC or something small like that. Greenline sell it for about £2 per head! Thats pretty expensive if you ask me.
