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.

Very very small

I have never gotten this type of plant before but it was so small I could hardly believe it. I got 8 stems, with most having very short and very few leaves on them and almost no roots.
With that said, The annubias that I got was incredible!! Very large with a great root system.

Great plants and way more than I expected to receive, again

Stems look healthy and got here quickly. Looks like he sent an extra bunch with my order, my online business won’t be going to anyone else.

Nice and healthy, lots of tufts to plant.

Nice looking plants

Received 8 stems in great shape. An excellent foreground plant.

More than expected

I bought one bundle which stated that you would receive 5 to 6 stems. I received more like 10 to 12. The plants looked great and there doesn't appear to be any hitchhikers on any of the plants I received. I am very happy with my order and will definitely be ordering again.
