Plant Profile Sagittaria platyphylla


26 Aug 2016
Plantbase submitted a new Plantbase Item:

Sagittaria platyphylla

Like Echinodorus, Sagittarias are members of the water plantain family. They are also resident in North and South America. Sagittaria platyphylla has a short rhizome. Submerged leaves are like ribbons and arranged almost in a rosette. They can grow up to 25 cm long. In an aquarium the ideal spot for these plants is in the midground, or the foreground in larger aquaria. They are very easy to care for at cooler water temperatures. They grow slowly and older outer leaves can be removed occasionally.
