Tall Narrowleaf Sagittaria (Sagittaria subulata) is a grass-like plant with roots and, as its name states, several long, narrow, green leaves. It can be grown emersed or submersed and it propagates prolifically through runners, plus it can develop an extra stem that will flower just above the surface of the water. This versatile plant can eventually grow to a height of 20 inches (51 cm), so it is ideal as a mid-ground or background plant, depending on the size and height of the aquarium. Tall Narrowleaf Sagittaria can even live in brackish water.

Tall Narrowleaf Sagittaria is one of the easier aquarium plants to maintain.  It can thrive in a very wide pH and temperature range. It does not require COsupplementation or overly high lighting, but it will look its best and grow fastest with moderate to high lighting. If kept in high lighting and nutrient-rich water, it can develop red coloration on its leaves. Due to the thin width of its leaves, Tall Narrowleaf Sagittaria is not suitable for aquariums with destructive animals such as crayfish, large cichlids, or goldfish.

Like most plants, Tall Narrowleaf Sagittaria will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, nitrogen, iron, and other plant supplements.

We sell this plant in weighted bunches, but the plants have roots and can be unbunched and planted throughout the aquarium.
