Val Asiatica Biwaensis (Thick Corkscrew val) BF
"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.
