Giant Jungle Val (Vallisneria Americana) "Boss of Planted Tanks"
So there is Jungle Val and then there is Vallisneria Americana
I don't get it in often but I have GIANT JUNGLE VAL in stock right now.
As of 8-22-19, I am proud to say my guy Ryan has been growing this in our greenhouse. We have it growing in a 55 gallon on top of one of our systems. It is planted in both dirt and fluval stratum.
You might get it with a redish tint to it. That's what happens when you grow most val on the edge of too much light.... Hey- we are happy about it...and so is the plant :)
Read our reviews!
Currently it is about a half inch thick...but will grow in time to be about an inch across.
This is the good stuff. This is the Giant Stuff. Do you have a tall tank? Vallisneria Americana is your answer! Giant Jungle Val doesn't adapt quite as fast as the other varieties like contortion val or corkscrew. It has thicker leaves, which once they get rolling are going to need trimmed back. I am excited to be offering this plant as long as I get it. One order is 4 stems about a feet long with perhaps a few runners starting. (This is an easy to keep plant, that prefers a good substrate but I have seen it grown in sand)
This plant is THE Background plant for a HUGE Aquarium....
Don't forget the Growth Juice... Our hot selling fertilizer is how we keep our val from melting back too quickly....or at all.
(Make sure and check out our VAL Nana if you want the OPPOSITE of this plants...a Skinny Vallisneria)
Seriously impressed with the root growth on these giant Val plants. Very happy with my purchase. Now hopefully none of my fish will eat them.
Plants looked good only one had long leaves, but all had good roots so shouldn't take long. Hey D, all that green is from you!
Been waiting on this to be available and it was worth the weight. Good roots, plants look great.
Arrived super fast and in great shape. Would definitely order again.
The roots on these are unbelievable. Thick, dense, healthy roots at least 3" long on every plant. I expect the leaves will dies back and then regrow because Jungle Val always does for me, but with this kind of root system these plants should come back very quickly.
The description says you get 3 stems. I got a big clump loaded with runners, about 15 stems if I separate them out.
I hesitated on this plant because of the higher price compared to most of Dustin's plants. All I can say is don't hesitate. This is a heck of a deal for a great healthy plant.
