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:
This is my first time trying Dwarf Sag and so far they're doing great. They came with heathy roots, a few leaves ourt of the whole bunch were yellowed/damaged.
I've had Dwarf Sag in the past but never from Dustin. This sag came to be in great condition with a solid root structure. Its melting a bit after being in my tank for a few days but new growth is already starting to replace the melted leaves. I can't wait until it starts covering the bottom of my tank. I've purchased all of my plants from Dustin and I've yet to be disappointed!
They came in with slightly damaged tips however they quickly perked up and by the third day in the tank they have started to sprout up little baby plants. Seeing great successes with them!
Hello Dustin, the plants arrived and were beautiful. I couldn't wait to plant them in my aquarium. I planted them all and they look great and are acclimating in the aquarium very well.
The 3 star review has nothing to do with the plants or the quality of them. The 3 star review is because a week after The plants were planted, my gf asked me, “when did you buy snails?”. I told her I never bought any snails. To my chagrin there are snails crawling all around my tank. I haven't even had a chance to add the dish yet and Im combating snails straight out the gate. Not mad but disappointed that the first creatures in my tank are pests and not fish. I’m hoping the pygmy pea puffers I am adding to the tank will dispose of them.
Like I said, plant quality good, but you might want to find a way to get rid of your stowaways.
Im not sure if I will be ordering anymore plants at the moment.
this was in my second order I have been very happy with all the plants I have received from DFT but as a little disappointed with this one it was very small ,roots were small and have had a hard time keeping it in the substrate. but will see how it does. I will order again from DFT cant beat the quality or the service
