Vallisneria Americana, also called Corkscrew Val, is a wide blade, grass-like plant, in which the leaves will twist, giving them the appearance of a corkscrew. They're great at creating a jungle-like appearance in your aquarium. Vals are grass-like plants that spread along with side shoots and can grow to the height of your aquarium. They are heavy root feeders so it is advised to plant them in a nutrient-rich substrate or to supplement nutrients with root tabs.


NOTE: each portion comes as a bunch of 2-3 nodes
