This Sagittaria species is a fast-growing plant that can quickly fill a great amount of space in the aquarium!

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.

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, Narrowleaf Sagittaria is not suitable for aquariums with destructive animals such as crayfish, large cichlids, or goldfish.

Like most plants, 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.

No aquarium plant distributor/nursery/wholesaler/retailer can or will guarantee their plants to be 100% snail free. We can not guarantee our plants will be snail free.

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
