Sag graminea

Sag graminea

Sag graminea is a great aquarium and Pond plant. It is similar to Vals. The leaves spiral slightly like Corscrew Val but they are thinner and a lighter yellow green color. These can grow Tall and work well in a 55. In a very shallow tank they can grow up out of the water so clipping them back at the water surface is advised. They do NOT lay over the top of the water like Vals do but instead eventually go stiff and erect and come out of the water completely... They like Medium light or better and a rich substrate is appreciated but not necessary. These are sold as single bare root plants

Sag subulata NOT DWARF

Sag subulata NOT DWARF

(Sagittaria subulata) Sag subulata is a nice midground plant.. it has narrow leaves which are rigid and grow about 5 inches long.. this is a rosette rather than a fan leaf arrangement like Vallisneria. It is happy with Moderately low light and moderate Nutrient Rich Substrate.. Once acclimated to your tank it will send runners just beneath the substrate and send new plants up around it. Great Looking strong plant for Midground.

Sagittaria platyphylla

Sagittaria platyphylla

Sagittaria platyphylla is a nice looking Sag. It can grow Medium Large. The leaves grow out of a rosette from the root base and 10-15 leaves is not at all uncommon. The leaves can attain a length of 14+ inches but it comes up and out then the leaves turn down, so it is not over powering at all. These plants prefer rich substrate and Medium Lighting. They will also do well in outdoor ponds. These are Medium/small Plants with about 6 leaves each and the leaves are about 5 inches each. Very nice healthy plants with robust root systems.

Short Quillwort

Short Quillwort

Isoetes vetata. This is an unusual plant.. It is a quillwort that lives underwater. It needs to be planted as deep as possible.. when you first see the plant you will think I am crazy but plant it deep.. I mean DEEP.. The base of the leaves are tasty and prone to snail damage but planted deep (which it likes) protects it from this.

Tall Hairgrass clumps

Tall Hairgrass clumps

(Eleocharis vivipara) These are a Tall Hairgrass. The Strands are small in diameter like dwarf hairgrass but they will grow up to the water surface. They are currently running 13 to 17 inches tall. They are about 1 sq. inch in surface area. These are a little short at the moment but starting to shoot up high now. I can't seem to hang on to this long enough to let it get as tall as the pic.

Val caulescens

Val caulescens

( Vallisneria caulescens) This is almost a Chimera of a plant.. It starts like any normal val with a runner and long strap leaves then it suddenly becomes a stem plant MUCH more like Blyxa. It develops a definite stem with leaves coming out of it and will also make side shoots to turn it into a full bouquet of Val. Amazing plant.. it prefers medium hard water and warmer temps and a nutritious substrate. I have been working with this plant for a few as a challenge by one of the many Wholesalers I have been selling to.. well I grew enough for them to offer and the extras I am going to offer here.. The red colors develop more intense with good light and decent iron and Carbonate hardness in your water column. There are distinct Male and female plants in this one. They look the same but they only develop one type of flower unlike most Vals. These are sold by the single plant.

Vallisneria nana

Vallisneria nana

Vallisneria nana is a solitary contrast plant with dark green, rosulate, narrow leaves. It is extremely suitable as a mid-ground plant, but can also be used as a background plant in smaller tanks. The leaves are much narrower than with other species of Val. In its natural habitat of northern Australia, Vallisneria nana reaches a height of only 15 cm, but in aquariums it typically grows to 30-50 cm, which is due to the different light and nutrient conditions. Vallisneria nana produces offshoots very readily, so compact vegetation will soon develop in good conditions. again this has very small leaves for a Val and looks similar to True giant hairgrass. Unlike the giant hairgrass however, the val nana leaves stay in the water even if they grow taller than the tank. Instead of shooting up out of the water they lay over and stay in water but on the surface like many other Vals. This is sold by the individual plant.
