Sagittaria platyphylla is commonly known as Chilensis or Broad Leaf Sagittaria, and is a wide blade, grass-like plant. It is green in color, fast growing and can be placed in a variety of locations within the aquarium.


Reproduction with this plant occurs through runners set out by the plant, or by seed production. Allow the new plant to develop a root system and immature leaves prior to separating it from the mother plant. At that time, it can then be planted in a different location, or simply left in the same position.

The Chilensis benefits from regular additions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements.
