Vallisneria Spiralis Leopard (Easy Background Aquarium Plant)
There are certain plants I would like in my coffin when I move on to the next whatever... Val is one of them.
While we haven't stocked this plant for long, it is certainly making a strong case to ride with me in my coffin.
Like Italian Val, this thin Vallsneria Spiralis is a fast grower. I don't know why it is call "Vallisneria Spiralis" as we don't see hardly any spiral to it.
(You would want to check out "Val Torta" for this look.)
This is my first time with this type of val. It came well packaged and with tall leaves. It looks good even after being in the package a week, UPS fault.
I really love Vallisneria Spiralis Leopard! It has beautiful coloration and my shrimp love to graze on it.
I ordered 5 plants. They appear to be very mature, probably over 12 inches high. Each bunch contained 4 mature plants, so I ended up with 20 plants which was perfect for my needs. The roots were a little short to embed in the substrate, so I used my bionic roots on each one, which I made on my 3D printer. The results were perfect. The top six inches of these plants are the reddest things in my tank. I am very happy with my purchase, and will purchase plants from Dustin again.
I ordered the Val and it arrived looking beautiful! Healthy, nice and green , and plenty of roots. Just planted in my large tank as a background plant. So far so good!!
Lush, tall green, elegant plants. As with all of Dustin's plants they are super health and have a vigorous root system developing. I expect them to take off immediately. I have a 30 gallon tank and they almost reach the top. My smaller fish love the cover they give them. Super pleased!
