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:
I order 2 bunches of Dwarf Sagittaria Subulata. The plants were really healthy. After a short quarantine, I put them into 2 of my tanks and they seem to be doing fine after a few days.
Great looking, healthy plants. Looks good in my 20 Gallon tank. I'll be getting more for my 75 gallon.
I received so much I was able to place some in my 55 gallon and my 30. Their very generous with the amount of plants they give you. My only dislike is the newspaper sticking to the plants.
I never thought I’d like plants more than the fish! Thank you.
This came in a nice thick bunch, I was able to plant a few in three different betta/platy tanks, the babies are gonna love it! Looking forward to the spread.
