Vallisneria Torta (Spiral Val)
Heads up- Currently these are shorter. They are only about three or 4 inches tall but they are dense plugs. They have grown back but are not tall and wavy, yet. (it’s a Val - Val melts, and comes back ;)
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.
Great looking plants. Arrived in good condition. Would buy again.
These are very small and cute, hope I can keep them alive so they will get big
Looks really nice and healthy! Thanks!
Again, I am beyond please with the quality of the plants from Dustin. Nice and lush with appreciated extras. This is my 3rd order, and will only purchase from Dustin's Fishtanks going forward.
I have a 55gal community tank and a 10gal betta tank that I split this between. My betta noticed it right away and swims through it! It looks healthy and happy in my tanks. Good roots on them too!
