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 in stock long as of 4.12.21 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.
Was expecting bigger plants, up to 12" tall, with more developed roots. Was hoping for robust, fairly mature plants that would quickly send out runners. Both bunches were a bit droopy, lacked color. Will be satisfied if these plants perk up and grow to surface (29 and 55 gal tanks) before long. If they do well, establish themselves nicely, I will be ordering more plants of other types in the future. I took the package from the delivery man when he arrived and had the plants in tanks within 5 mins. Thank-you.
As always beautiful plants, fast shipping, awesome service. Thank you
Hell yeah DFT!! This is my first time ordering & I am definitely impressed. My order arrived quickly, plants were packaged great, and the colors are AMAZING. They’re all healthy & sturdy & have roots popping out all over the place. Also the prices are so fair for what you get. Perfect for someone like me... who wants a stunning tank but is also on a budget. This is absolutely my new go-to for plants!! If you’re thinking about ordering, but are on the fence... DO IT!!! You’ll be so happy you did!!👍🏼👍🏼
I have ordered 2 seperate times and every plant has been amazing. Will continue ordering from him. In fact I already placed another order. Here is a sample of his amazing plants! Highly recommend!
Very strong, good looking plants. Wish I had found these sooner.
