Subulata is a thin, grasslike looking plant. The leaves are green in coloration with some areas of reddish brown. A "dwarf" variant is often available as well as the "regular" Subulata but height is often dependent on lighting; the plants will grow taller in lower lighting but will stay more compact and spread laterally in higher lighting. Subulata may tolerate brackish water environments with very low salinity.
Sagittaria plants are popular "grassy" plants. They are often confused with the "Val's" from genus Vallisneria, but Sagittaria's typically have stiffer blades while the Val's are usually more delicate and flowing. Sagittaria plants spread by extending "runners" with new small plants from the larger plants. They benefit from mineral and nutrient supplements like iron and CO2.

This sagittaria makes a beautiful plant, but takes a long time to establish itself in the tank. Mine arrived in good condition, but is going through its extended adjustment time. Once established, it will spread quickly.
