Vallisneria Torta (Spiral Val)
The goal is to have EVERY Type of Vallisneria growing in our greenhouse. This Vallisneria Torta has brought us one step closer.
All Vallisneria makes a wonderful background plants. This Vallisneria is no exception!
Our experience has shown that the thicker the Val the slower the grower... or regrower.
(This can be seen with our big Daddy "Giant Jungle Val" (Vallisneria Americana) it grows thicker and takes a second longer to bounce back)
Vallisneria Torta is actually on the fast side for us with the speed in which it bounced back.
Like all Vallisnernia- it might melt back on you with a change in water conditions. Not to worry, as this will only bounce back stronger....
Vallisneria Torta looks exactly like our regular Val, but it has a unique twist to it, literally!
We have found that an early heavy amount of liquid fertilizer will get your Val rolling quickly with less melting.
If you see some rough tips, cut them about an inch below where they start.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being can grow in your toilet. 10 being impossible. This would be a 1.5 only because it might melt back a tad.
Really like the quality. Beautiful plant. No melting big bunches. Received double portion! Love it.
As always, the plants arrived healthy and green!
I thought Val was overhyped until I ordered it and now I’m in love. This is the start of a planted axolotl tank that is my latest work in progress. The val is growing nicely in the background and I can’t wait to see how it progresses. Love the spiral. Won’t get this stuff from anyone else.
