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.
I ordered 2 bunches assuming they would have about 2 or 3 shoots per bunch. I received 4 bunches with about a half dozen shoots per bunch. More than enough to make my tank look full. I can't wait for them to reach the top and start waving in the current. I also ordered Myriochyllum, a huge bunch. My dwarf shrimp are already crawling through it.
Arrived quickly & looks excellent. A note on the packing slips says it was trimmed, so they threw in some extra! I’m excited to see it grow in! 👍🏻👍🏻
Val “torta” nice roots & new leaves. They’re acclimating nicely! Small but I received a lot of plants. Very happy!
They were a little melted, not quite as geeen as I’d like them. But with very doable to work with. A little love and care they’ll bounce back.
Still happy with them!
In these trying times Dustin has no control over delivery times and like others, mine arrived late. There was already some melting but the clumps were generous and I'm sure they will bounce back!
