Vallisneria Torta (Spiral Val)
The goal is to have EVERY Type of Vallisneria growing in our greenhouse. This Vallisneria Torta has brought us one step closer.
All Vallisneria makes a wonderful background plants. This Vallisneria is no exception!
AS OF 4-10-20.... OUR TORTA VAL IS ONLY ABOUT 2 inches tall.. IT HAS BEEN REGROWN, but is SHORT.
Our experience has shown that the thicker the Val the slower the grower... or regrower.
(This can be seen with our big Daddy "Giant Jungle Val" (Vallisneria Americana) it grows thicker and takes a second longer to bounce back)
Vallisneria Torta is actually on the fast side for us with the speed in which it bounced back.
Like all Vallisnernia- it might melt back on you with a change in water conditions. Not to worry, as this will only bounce back stronger....
Vallisneria Torta looks exactly like our regular Val, but it has a unique twist to it, literally!
We have found that an early heavy amount of liquid fertilizer will get your Val rolling quickly with less melting.
If you see some rough tips, cut them about an inch below where they start.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being can grow in your toilet. 10 being impossible. This would be a 1.5 only because it might melt back a tad.
I am very happy with these plants. Exactly what I wanted. I really received more plants than expected.👍
They suffered a bit through no fault of the DF team, just mail delivery. But I can see the new leaves with their beautiful spiral showing. I had to trim off a bit because it suffered in shipping due to our random 92* temps. Which is understandable. I am very please still. I was sent 3 because they were short, after trimming they are shorter but still beautiful and I am excited to watch them grown in my new tank. I cant wait to see then under my new light from here as well!
Pictures show arrival and after a trim and then when I put them in their new home. Trust val will bounce back if given the chance and time! Dont be discouraged!
I've ordered numerous plants from Dustin's and I'm always more than happy with them. Great packaging, shipping, and they dont mind throwing an extra something in now and again. Highly recommend
Looks really good appears to have some kind of eggs on it
