SAGITTARIA SUBULATA VAR. PUSILLA
|Species:||subulata var. pusilla|
|Light demand:||high - medium|
|Water hardness:||very soft to moderate|
This dwarf arrowhead is a much loved aquarium plant with very narrow, ribbon-like leaves. You could be forgiven for first thinking that the leaves look like Vallisnerias. Sagittaria subulata var. pussila is highly variable and can grow anywhere from a few centimetres up to 40 cm tall. Under good lighting, this arrowhead variety stays nice and short for use in the foreground. Regularly removing any runners with longer leaves will help keep the carpet short. Moderate-hard to hard water is best for these plants, but they tolerate a variety of water temperatures.
