Dwarf Sagittaria is a popular choice as a foreground plant that adds subtle depth to your aquascape. It can grow high enough to make an excellent mid- or background accent as well. This plant is easy to care for, making it a great option for beginners. The plant is bright green and looks like wide blades of grass. It can be grown emersed or submersed. A mature plant can send a stem to the surface of your tank and bloom small white flowers.
Dwarf Sagittaria will grow under a variety of conditions. It does not require CO2 in order to grow, but it does grow much faster with it. This plant is one of few that can tolerate rather hard, alkaline water. Dwarf Sagittaria is fine under moderate light, but will thrive with higher lighting. High lighting may bring out some red tones in the leaves. If the plant does not have sufficient iron its leaves will appear sickly and yellow, and may need to be treated with iron and other nutrients. Dwarf Sagittaria propagates readily on its on and will produce a thick carpet if left to its own devices. To propagate, pinch off the plant’s runners and plant them into the substrate.
