Sagittaria subulata or more commonly know as Dwarf Sag is an ideal, undemanding foreground plant. I highly recommend this plant if you are new to Live aquatic plants or are looking for an easy plant that does well in low light.
Dwarf Sag works well as a foreground plant in large aquariums or a mid-ground plant in small aquariums.

You are buying 1 pot that has been growing Emersed. The plant will look more like picture 1 when it arrives. Once it is planted in your substrate it will begin to take on the look of submerged which is pictures 2 and 3 above.
Potted plants are started in rock wool. To plant remove as much rock wool as possible. Most of the rock wool will pull off. If you have any left and want it off, shake the plants gently by holding it by the plant and shaking in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant in your substrate.
To separate the plant into individual plants grab the stems right above the root and pull gently. The roots should separate if they don't stop pulling and try other stems. Swirling this plant in water will help each individual plant separate easier.
Only plant the root in your substrate, not any of the plant itself or this can cause melting or shock, for more information on planting and caring for your plants please go here
