Easy to grow plant. Spreads by runners. Grows very tall in an aquarium and can drape over the top to make fish feel secure. When it's well established you can get a new shoot as soon as every 3 days. Great for a community tank but also often used in Goldfish and African Cichlid tanks. I've written an article about Vallisneria as I love it so much! Vallisneria the One Plant Wonder

Fast grower, spreading fast

I’ve had this plan in my 75g tank for a little over two weeks now. I bought two pots of this. One came in bigger than the other and already had a runner coming off of it when it arrived. I already have 4 or 5 more runners out and growing nice long leaves. It’s doing great.

Beautiful Vallisneria

Plant arrived in perfect condition, not even a bent leaf in sight. Set it up in the back of my tank under a Finnex Stingray light (also from Aquarium co-op) and it is doing great. After just two weeks it has 4 new plants, and the original has doubled in size. My new favorite plant!

Not doing too well but we'll see.

It arrived it good condition but it seems to be disintegrating. But we'll see, it's not dead yet

Superior Quality

I am so impressed with the quality of the vallisneria that I got from here. I already had some val from my LFS but hands down... this one is by far better and healthier than my others. I will now only buy my plants from here.


I ordered about 4 of the Vallisneria and I was blown away at how well the packaging was. Each plant came in a moisture fabric type bag as well as a plastic one. All the plants were still very wet and no where near drying out (small worry I had being in Arizona) All of the plants looked very healthy and vibrant. Once I got them in the tank, there was a little bit of melting (as to be expected) but after 3 or 4 days they started sending runners! It's been about 2 weeks now and the Vallisneria have been sending out runners everywhere, can't wait have a nice lush jungle in the coming months!
