NOTE: The photos labeled "AS OF 6/12/23" is what the plant looks like that you will receive. They have been potted in house. 

So there is Jungle Val and then there is Vallisneria Americana

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


STOP. These will be as short as 4 to 12 inches with massive roots from our basins…They get way taller but will/may melt initially.  They might have a redish brown hue from the higher light/ sun we use


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.

It was ok happy got more than ùnexpected but they were really tiny for giant val then I expected

joshua nahrgang

Purchased 3 they sent leopard val instead. Then sent 4 giant val which was the equivalent of 1 of the wrong leopard vals they sent. Barely any root on the plants I received and at the size they are I'm not even sure it's gjv. 4-5 inch's nothing like the pictures advertised. Waste of time and money for some Val. Not what I was expecting from the great Dustin's fish tanks that's advertised everywhere.

The plants arrived and I received more than I thought. Very happy and excited about the new addition to my aquarium. Just beautiful


Don’t underestimate the price! BUY THIS PRODUCT! I fully expected one meager plant that I’d have to wait weeks, if not months, to grow to the size that I wanted despite the “giant” name in the title but when it arrived I got not only one tall plant but multiple plants in total! I’d say I at least got ten — maybe fifteen — plants with a little less than half of them already propagating and has smaller baby plants attached. This was enough to fill three of my fish thanks but sadly only one was up and running! Right now I’m having them room in one tank with my betta (who is completely obsessed with them btw) until I can figure out a situation with them. JUST BUY ONE! YOU DONT NEED MORE THAN ONE!

My fish loved it.

My 125 with Denison, mascara, Arulius barbs, Uprooted and tried to shred with in 24hr. Anubis they pull off any new growth, The java fern they shred until it is just a stem. Can't have nice things. I was hoping the Jungle val would make it. It is recouping in another tank.
