Val Asiatica Biwaensis (Thick Corkscrew val)
"Hello my name is Dustin and I have a Val problem."
The first step is admitting the problem right? I love Val and am on a quest to collect ALL of the varieties of Val. I have said it before and I'll sat it again. I would like val in my coffin if something happens to me.
Enter- The next Val. Val Asiatica Biwaensis.
What does it's name mean? I have no idea. Something to do with Asia. Here is what we do know. It's pretty killer.
This Val is like a mix between Spiral Val (or Val Torta/ corkscrew) with the spiral leaves crossed with GIANT Val.
Yep- it has a thicker and wider leaf to it with a neat spiral as well.
While I haven't had this plant instock long as of 8.26. We have 4 x 8 foot by 8 foot basins of val. We know these plants. THIS PLANT IS GOING TO MELT, BUT IT WILL COME BACK! EXPECT THEM TO BE SHORT, THEY ARE BEING TRIMMED BACK !
BUT like ALL Vallisneria it will grow back stronger.
Because of the thicker leaves of this species of Vallisneria, it will take tad longer to grow back than a thin variety.
These plants are great. And big portion for the money was able to plant both two corners of the tank with one order. Can’t wait to see how it grows.
I’m so happy with my order! Everything came in looking so happy and healthy! Naturally there has been a little bit of melting, but I expected that to happen. The plants also arrived much quicker than. I thought they would!
I ordered two Vallisneria Asiatica Biwaensis plants they sent two clumps with at least five plants each. There was also three individual plants with the order. The Val is tall with thick curled leaves they look great.
There are beautiful and health plants !
