Vallisneria asiastica is a delightful plant with wonderful curls to it and is really an eye-catcher. It also loves good lighting. A very easy to grow plant although they prefer the water temperature to not be too warm. Ideal for beginners as they are so undemanding and require very little maintenance.
They will grow fine in gravel however add some root tabs for nutrients or go for a nutrient-rich substrate such as Tropica Aquarium Soil. They throw off runners which can later be cut off and re-planted where ever you desire or alternatively let them grow and spread naturally and create a certain effect. Note that all vallis is intolerant of liquid carbon and can melt if dosing it at the same time as growing this plant.
Vallisneria asiatica bunches consist of approximately 3 plants which are approximately 20-25cm in length.
Note: This plant does not come with the weight in the picture. In addition, as it is a true aquatic plant there are chances of snails or snail eggs. As we buy from European stock, pesticides are never used. Whilst we do our very best to remove any that we see, we wanted to make you aware that this is a possibility.
