You have to try Sagittaria subulata more commonly known as Dwarf Sagittaria, especially if are just getting into the hobby. It is one of my favorite plants because it grows like crazy. It looks and grows like grass. Dwarf Sagittaria will keep growing and growing with runners on your tank.

It stays short and only gets about 3-5 inches tall so you can run it as a nice fore to mid ground plant. When I first got Dwarf Sagittaria I spread it out pretty thinly in a wide open space in my 125 gallon planted tank. It soon grew in full and started to head into other parts of the tank that I didn't exactly want it to grow into.

Dwarf Sag is one of my top 5 favorite aquarium plants. Anyone who wants a great hardy plant should give Dwarf Sagittaria or Dwarf Sag a try. 6-8 stems or more I usually have a ton of this so you gotta try it out…Great grower. 1st plant I did for Species Sunday. Its awesome.

Looking for a replacement for sag? Try Tenellus(Microsword)

NOTE: We are now pleased to carry the bigger beautiful cousin of this great plant.

Check out Saggitaria Teres (it gets purple under super high light) It looks cool with Dwarf Sag as well :)

Care Scale of 1-10:

1.5 (grows better in good substrate or you can plant in plain gravel)


Grows fine in low light, but creates a carpet faster in higher light

Temps: Can handle pretty much anything from 65 to 85. Pretty amazingly easy plant.

Where to Plant:

Foreground. Plant the root structure directly into the substrate.

Don't Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!

Great job

nice amount

I ordered enough to start in 2 different tanks. Plants arrived in good condition and super easy to plant.


I was very surprised to see my plants come right on time. They were all wrapped carefully and in great shape. I did the bleach thingy to rid them of snails and put them temporarily in my 29 gallon. I have a 55 gallon ordered and when that comes, that will be their permanant home. Thanks, Dustan, for great service and products.

Happy customer

Plants showed up fast and healthy. I was really surprised that I was able to spread them apart and covered the area I needed...

Nice plant liked it alot

I had this awesome picture in my head of what it was going to look like when this started growing out, looked good for a few days but I finally lost the battle with my goldfish of trying to keep them planted
