Dwarf Sagittaria Subulata

Sagittaria Subulata, also known as needle Sagittaria, originates from the coastal areas of the Eastern United States. It has a grass-like appearance and will stay short, making beautiful beds of grass in your aquarium. This is a hardy plant that will adapt to a variety of tank conditions and will even tolerate high pH and hard water. Sagittaria Subulata is a great plant for beginners.

Caring For Sagittaria Subulata

Sagittaria Subulata is a great plant for beginners. It does not require high lighting or specialty substrate. Like most plants, it will grow faster if it is planted in a good substrate and provided with some fertilization like root tabs and good lighting.  

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 71-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground-Midground

This plant looks best when planted in small groups in the foreground of the aquarium. Under good conditions, Sagittaria will quickly start spreading through runners and begin carpeting your tank.

Dwarf Sagittaria is also available potted.
