STOP: These will show up brownish RED as they were grown in FULL SUN. THEY WILL MELT BACK as your tanks probably aren't full sun. They will come back stronger

So there is Jungle Val and then there is Vallisneria Americana

WE GROW THIS ENTIRELY IN HOUSE.... IN 8X8 foot basins....


THIS PLANT MIGHT MELT BACK ON YOU. -This is what Val does, but this species does the hardest... but then grown back thicker.  (It has to have it's leaves adjust to different water temps.)  Faster than most plants- Val rebounds quickly.

You will get a THICK TALL PLUG with great roots.  

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.

Only plant supplier I use

Why? Because the quality is always top notch. As usual large healthy established plants. PLUS..... Dustin is the most honest retailer I know of. You always know exactly what to expect when ordering. I was waiting for the Jungle Val to become available and when it does he states in the plant description (in bold face) that the plants will be brownish red and may melt back and explains why! Can't beat that!

Just ok

Not very pleased with the plants , usually good but this wasn’t good , oh well


Came in short and unhealthy it is a hard plant to ship I was told by a friend

Good service

I am across the country from KY. The packaging to preserve the plants for the trip was the best I have seen. The Val was a little ragged but has strong healthy roots. I suspect after a little melt they will flourish. I would by from Dustin again.


Dustins fishtanks!! What more is there to say besides thank you! 🙂
