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:
Arrived in a couple of days. Planted the off shots and a couple are not looking to good while others seem ok.
I am a total noob when it comes to planted aquariums. That said, these Sag plants are very healthy, but they are also incredibly tiny. They're so small I don't even know how to plant them. That's disappointing for a newbie, but I'm hoping they'll root out quickly.
They sent 10 stems which is more than advertised, so that was nice at least.
A solid 3.5 stars. I likely won't purchase again.
Highly highly recommend any of this companies plants....great
Many were very young small plants. Would have liked for them to be larger but they are healthy and the large number allowed me to get a nice starting spread of sags. Happy with my order, thanks!
I was expecting some better specimens of Dsag from Dustin. The ones I received were a Little worse for wear. Hopefully they will take.
