Sagittaria Platyphylla, also known as Broadleaf "Chilensis" or Giant Sagittaria, originates from North America and Southeast Asia.  The common name "giant" may be 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 species plants.  S. Platyphylla is easy to care for but it appreciates good lighting and fertilization, including iron supplementation.  Provided good conditions and time, this plant will form dense "carpet" across the aquarium floor.  It propagates through runners.

    This is a really nice sturdy plant. I plan to buy a lot more of them. They don't melt due to shipping or transplanting.

    As another reviewer mentioned, the "set of 2 bunches" could more accurately be described as "set of 2 plants," rather than the clump represented in the photo. The plants arrived today in great shape. Each plant had well developed roots and were healthy. I have never had this plant before, and was delighted to find that they are a much darker green than they look in the photo - darker than the sagitteria subulata I have kept, as well. I am pleased with this interesting dark color that is different from my other plants.
