Broadleaf Chilensis Sagittaria | Potted
Broadleaf "Chilensis" or Giant Sagittaria, known by its scientific name as Sagittaria Platyphylla, originates from North America and Southeast Asia. The common name "giant" is a little bit misleading because this plant is low-growing. The "giant" monicker refers to the size of its leaves which are thicker than those of other similar Sagittaria species.
Care & Maintenance
Broadleaf Sagittaria is easy to care for but it appreciates good lighting and fertilization, including iron supplementation. Provided with good conditions and time, this plant will form a dense "carpet" across the aquarium foreground. It propagates through runners.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 72-82°F
- Tank Placement: Foreground - Midground
Sagittaria looks best when planted in small groups of several plants in the foreground of the aquarium.
Broadleaf Sagittaria is also available as bare-root plants.
