5 Dwarf Sag Plants
Dwarf sag (Sagittaria subulata) is a commonly available, hardy aquatic plant that is great for beginners. Dwarf Sagittaria are the perfect easy to grow carpet plants. These plants may initially melt back some, they just need time to grow and establish in your tank. These little plants are excellent easy to grow carpet plants that spread like crazy! Keep in mind, if you want plants to grow tight and low along the bottom (like a carpet) then you want to provide good lighting. In general, the stronger the light, the more bushy/compact plants will grow since they aren’t having to struggle in order to reach the light.
