Easy to grow plant. Spreads by runners. Grows very tall in an aquarium and can drape over the top to make fish feel secure. Can be fed with root tabs or water column fertilizer. 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

How to grow:
A Ph: 6.8 to 8.5 with some minerals in the water, naturally coming from hard water. To feed this plant, it likes to have fertilizer in the water column, Easy Green works well for this and root tabs for an added boost. It will spread itself through our aquarium, when planting it you'll want to make sure the "crown" of the plant isn't under the substrate. You can trim Vallisneria but those leaves may die back.

***Our normal Vallisneria comes with the tag of italian val. Sizes will vary from each shipment. Plants can be larger or smaller than the picture shown.***

Arrived in great condition from West coast to East Coast!!

Couldn’t be happier! This was the first time I ordered plants online so I was a little leary but they were packaged with great care and are in perfect condition -in the middle of winter yet! Will be ordering more!!!

Great as usual

I was so impressed with this, I bought two more bunches.

Beautiful plant

Very, very pleased with my plants. My healthy plants arrived in excellent condition due to the exceptional packaging. My plants looked great from day one and hardly any leaves/stems melted back. Will be ordering again!

Very happy!

Bought this on Cory's recommendation from the videos as I am new to plants in and aquarium and this is only my 2nd live plant. (Other is a Java Fern). I am VERY happy. I had 2 new runners within 4 days. The original plant has "melted back" a little and lost a couple leaves,but is now doing great! Now that It's been here 45 days, I have 4 runners that have shot off and are as big as the original plant! Substrate is gravel, I'm using EZ-green and after about 3 weeks of it being in I put in 1 osmocote root tab.


The plant did well initially but as time went by it never took root. Unknown,
