Jungle Val- jungle vallisneria, Vallisneria

Call it what you want to call it. Jungle Val is an amazing plant. It is one of those plants that you have to get when you are just getting started in the planted tank and want a plant that will go nuts.

I have kept Jungle vallisneria or Jungle Val under a number of different conditions. I first fell in love with Jungle Val when I put it in my high tech tank. (high lights/ dirt and CO2) It grew to the point where it was out of control.

There were so many runners popping up that I had a hard time removing it when I wanted it out of my tank. Jungle val also does great in a beginners tank without dirt. I have seen it in low light tanks with hardly any sort of nutrients in the substrate. (If you want to have a great substrate, check out our dirt substrate kits) I have seen Jungle val grow in just plain sand even. We are selling the skinnier jungle val for $9.95 for 5-6 stems of it.

You wont go wrong with this plant. Jungle Val might wither away when you put it into your tank. The leaves grow so easy that it isn't a problem and will come back stronger. Though the variety we are selling currently is less likely to melt as it has been grown in our tank conditions.

To reduce the chance of Val melting back on you, consider adding either our GROWTH Juice or Potassium. 

Val likes higher calcium content and ph if you can provide it but will adapt to a lower ph if that is how you run your aquarium.

This is one my top 10 favorite plants list for a reason. (If something happens to me- I would like Jungle val in my coffin please.)

Care Scale of 1-10 ( 1 it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)

Jungle Val is a 1.5 only because it might melt a tad initially then comes right back


Can handle super low lighting, grows faster in higher light

Where to plant:


Don't Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!

Speedy shipping. The jungle Val came more on the yellow side versus the bright green color from the pictures. It appears to be struggling in the tank. I’ve noticed the blades are breaking off. Not sure if it’s not doing well because of the substrate or if the plants are struggling. Here’s hoping

A little bit disappointed…

I’ve only ever ordered my plants from aquarium co-op before, and was slightly disappointed that this plant didn’t come in a pot.

Vallisneria (I ended up with Italian Val)

I wanted to give my shipment about a week before I rated and posted a picture. The sheer amount that was sent to me was AMAZING and had a beautiful root system already! At least double the about of plugs ordered. I almost didn’t have enough room to put the whole shipment in!! I know this can be a weak traveler, but it came in just fine and is already establishing/stabilizing in my aquarium. Still going through the ugly stage of a new set up, but I am thrilled!!! It’s already even shown signs of growth!! Can’t wait to order more!!

First time ordering these

Usually order Leo val but got these. Idk why some people complain about the tips being dead. Trim the dam thing stop crying. Anyways plants were great but my main focus are those roots and boy they were healthy no complaints will order again and again
