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.

You always get more than expected when order from Dustin this is my 3rd time now the dawrf sag was ok got a good bunch but half of it melted away even with root tabs, fertilizer, and hygger full spectrum light honestly i think its hit or miss with plants most of previous plants are doing great but again some of them melted away died

Amazing quality

My plants arrived when it was 105 degrees outside, and sat for 4 hours while I was at a Dr's appt. But it didn't seem to bother them at all! I received several separate plants in the bunch, with healthy roots and many leaves. No melting so far. Highly impressed!!
