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.

I usually don't have an issue recieving my plants from Dustin's fish tanj, but out of all the boxes that were delivered from UPS, not one box came with my dwarf sag very disappointed and hopefully Dustin does the right thing and gets this resolved quickly

I'm hooked on Dustin. Fast reliable service and great quality plants. This dwarf sag is going to be amazing once it roots in my aquasoil.

Love Dwarf Sag!

Received my order of Dwarf Sag, some big, some small, all very healthy. Just hoping my YoYo loaches leave them alone!
Thank you Dustin!!

It survived the Texas winter storm

I had some a carpet of Dustin’s dwarf sage in an outdoor pond from one bunch I ordered years ago. It actually survived and now in my new five gallon low tech and starting to spread 🍀
