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.

Great service and plants

Had to delay a shipment while I was out of town. A quick phone call and customer service had it taken care of. The plants arrived healthy and with a couple bonus shoots of Dwarf Sag. Purchased multiple times with Dustin's and will continue to shop here for my aquatic plant needs.

Great plants

The plants arrived, in great shape, in spite of the cold. And as seems normal, there are plenty of them. More than I paid for. Second great experience with this company.


More shoots than expected, very healthy.

Great Plants!

Plants arrived safely and were packaged well. No damage to the plants and they were lovely bright green! Heater pack I bought kept them perfect till I could get them in the tank! Thank you! Can’t wait to see them grow.


These came in beautifully! I cannot wait for them to grow out
