Sagittaria platyphylla

Sagittaria platyphylla has been used in the hobby for many years. But it is not widely available commercially, Which is a shame, because it is a a lovely and relatively simple plant for a larger, “low tech” aquarium. Its broad, strap-like leaves are a beautiful contrast to stem plants in the tank.
