    Jan 2011 Plant of the Month: Sagittaria Subulata (Dwarf Sag)


    Dwarf Sagittaria used as a fore/midground plant is a 180 gallon tank.

    Dwarf Sagittaria (Sagittaria subulata)

    Lighting Requirements: Low to High
    Substrate: Inert to Nutrient rich
    Height: 4"-16"
    Ease of growth: Very Easy/Easy
    Placement in aquarium: Mid to background in smaller aquariums, Foreground to mid in larger aquariums

    Dwarf Sagittaria is perfect for beginners and advanced aquarists alike as it is a very easy, undemanding plant that can grow quite quickly and spread fast to fill in an area within weeks. It is a flat, typically 1/4"-1/3" leaf with veining running parallel to the leaf edge. Dwarf Sagittaria is a rosette type stemless plant and will form dense clusters if not thinned. It is native to South America and Eastern North America. To propagate Dwarf Sagittaria, clip individual plantlets from the runner when the roots are approximately 1 inch or larger. It is very similar in appearance to Echinodorus tenellus, however Dwarf sagittaria can be identified by the "broken glass" appearance on the leaves, where Echinodorus tenellus doesnt. It can be seen in the first and second picture links below.

    Not mine, but a great picture which shows the plants profile and also the "broken glass" appearance.

    So, I take it this would best be placed in a 20g-long in a patch at a back corner?

    Very possible, though they tend to grow taller in lower light.

    Give it time, it can be invasive if you let it.

    Try upping the co2 or cutting the lights back a bit.
