Description

Common Name: Giant Val

Giant Val is a larger variant of the popular Vallisneria.  They act as the perfect background plants, growing tall and fast to create a jungle-like appearance.  Vals are grass-like plants that spread along with side shoots and can grow to the height of your aquarium.  They are nutrient loving plants that anchor deep into the substrate.

Notes:

  • Vallisneria are heavy root feeders and should be planted deeply in quality aquarium soil.
  • Vallisneria grows very large and tall making them suitable for larger planted aquariums.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • Please be sure to remove this plant from its wrap. Remove the foam surrounding the roots and plant into a quality substrate. For instructions on how to properly prep “bunched“ aquarium plants, click here.
  • CO2 injection will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
