Vallisneria is a tall-growing background aquarium plant that can grow to around 35-45cm in plant height. It is excellent to provide tall green background coverage.
It is a very easy plant which is suitable for low tech tank (does not require CO2 addition and does not require high lighting). Low to medium lighting is usually fine.
It is excellent for nature aquarium aquascape, Dutch aquascapes as well as rainforest, forest, jungle and river theme scapes.
Do note that majority of Vallisneria sold in the aquarium trade are outdoor emersed grown as they take a lot of space. However, when they are outdoor emersed grown, they are vulnerable to outdoor pests which can hitchhike on them. For example, dragonfly nymph / larvae can hitchhike on them and when it gets introduced inside an aquarium, it can eat small fish and shrimp.
For the Vallisneria sold here, we keep them submersed indoor to avoid outdoor pests and Aquarzon will also do a general manual rinsing before packaging for cleanliness.

Aquarzon recommends this plant for aquascapes which need a tall background plant that can grow to the water surface of the aquarium.
Do note that while we would very carefully package this plant, due to very long length of this plant as well as the crispy texture of its leaves which makes it easy to break, a bit of leaves may have breakage upon arrival. This is completely normal. The majority of the leaves will usually still be fine. Moreover, this plant can easily grow new leaves. This plant can sometimes shed its leaves when transitioning to a new aquarium. It is still alive and will usually grow new, stronger leaves when planted and allowed to transition.
As with all Vallisneria, Aquarzon would like too highlight to our customers that products containing glutaraldehyde can negatively affect Val. Products that contain glutaraldehyde includes Seachem Excel, liquid carbon and BBA remover algaecides. We have checked official Seachem information and Seachem states that their recommended dosage of Seachem Excel is fine with Vallisneria. However, we recommend that if you are using Seachem Excel, you should start with half dosage first and if the plant is fine, then you can gradually increase to full dosage.
This plant grown by Aquarzon is 100% aquarium submersed grown indoor and is very clean, free from weeds and outdoor pests. It is not tissue culture or emersed grown stock which can suffer transitional melting issues when planted in an aquarium. Our indoor submersed grown stock is in very healthy condition and ready to be planted straight in an aquarium.
