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.

Beautiful plants

The plants arrived quickly and came in great shape. They are all vibrant and appear healthy. I thought I would get a bit more dwarf sag than I received, but it does look great. I'm hoping that as it grows in and fills the gaps it will cover better.


Just planted. Great Foreground plants

Always goes above and beyond!

I ordered the base sized order (6-8 stems) and ended up getting a little extra! Even stated on the shipping slip that they threw on extra! Love that Dustin always takes care of his customers and keeps me coming back for more!!

Was easy to separate it out into individual sprouts ... not sure if that is best or not. But 3 full days later, they seem to be doing well with no die off or browning.
