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:
My order shipped quickly and got here in 2 days. I love how it was pre-seperated, it was nice and green too! I did have to wait a day after opening to plant it and even after having to wait everything is great! I will definitely be ordering again =)
Crazy fast growers, love to see new growth so fast in my tank. Thanks for the awesome products!
The sag I received was super healthy and I got more than expected. Very happy w this part of my order. A few had runners already! Photo is of a 10 gall

So happy with my dwarf sagittaria! Can't wait for it to take over the tank. Plants arrived in beautiful shape!
