Dwarf Sagittaria Subulata (Easiest Foreground Plant)
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:
I love love LOVE these plants. One week in and they started throwing down some solid roots, two weeks in and I was cutting babies off the originals and replanting! I also got more than was expected and, as always, my plants were in beautiful condition upon arrival!
I dont know if i just didnt think they woukd be this big or that they sent extra long ones but so far loving the look that they brought to my tank. They did come a little brown but i figured that would happen with the trip they made to me. Overall of they dont take over my tank like i want. Definitely will order more
I am long time fan and finally put in my first order. I was not disappointed. My sag came quickly and was in great condition. Didn't expect anything less. Tank on!
I really thought my plants would be dead because they shipped on the 29th got here on the 2nd. They were all alive and looked good. I have them planted just waiting for clear water they are in the 10.
Arrived in a couple of days. Planted the off shots and a couple are not looking to good while others seem ok.
