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 5-15 these are not as tall as usual. WE are selling a Giant VAL RUBRA (which we can't tell the difference between this and regular "Giant Val"
You will get a plug with multiple stems only about 6 inches tall as we haven't had grow season. THEY are THICK and THEY ARE healthy just not as tall as we typically offer. They are discounted accordingly.
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)
We also have a Spiral "Val torta" worth checking out.
Got some giant Val and my order was delivered sooner and thank you DustinsFishtanks for throwing a little extra the plants were better than expected
My order was shipped Tuesay and came in on Friday. The val is absouluty beautiful! Thanks Dustin again! I got a few bonus pieces! I can't wait to see it grow to it's full length.
A week later and I am not as happy with this selection as I have been with everything else I have gotten from Dustin. This is the one plant that I was really looking forward to receiving and to this point I am not having my socks knocked off. I have been in this hobby for about 50 years and have learned patience especially with plants. The root structure on this Val is pretty good. The issue is with the leaves. They were folded over in shipping and several have broken off and turned brown (the damaged ones only) This is not meant to discourage anyone from buying from Dustin but to let them know they may have to be patient and deal with this same shipping issue and wait for the plant to rebound. I personally would make the shipment a little larger to compensate for the look of the plants until they do take off in the aquarium. I will update the review in the future as they progress. I suspect they will be fine in 2-3 months. Buy these with the knowledge of what I am posting Thank You Dustin for making these available
