Dwarf Subulata - Sagittaria subulata
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. They will reproduce by sending out runners with new little plants that can be separated from the parent or left to spread on their own. Subulata may tolerate brackish water environments with very low salinity or lower light conditions but will grow best in softer water and under high light.
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.

Good plant, slow grow
It's a stiff leaf plant, and grows very slow....like dead slow, I've had one for at least 3 months and it barely has grown. Requires small, sandy substrate to root. I cannot express this enough, SLOW GROWER
Very good slow grower but very hearty
Really nice plant
This plant arrived healthy and did not have any problems with shipping or transplanting. It has done very well.
Great Price was shipped right away!
The plants arrived in excellent shape they even included one that had a flower bud It was shipped right away and they let me know what day it was shipped So I can be home when the package was delivered
