Usually ships in 1-2 business days from our fulfillment center

Vallisneria Torta is a classic Vallisneria species. Well-known for its slightly spiralized, green leaves, Vallisneria Torta is also rightly referenced to as corkscrew val. Similar to other Vallisneria aquarium plants, Vallisneria Torta is easy to keep and relatively undemanding with care making it a great aquarium plant for beginner hobbyists. Because it can grow fairly large, Vallisneria Torta is suitable as a mid to background choice in a planted tank. If favorable conditions are provided, this aquatic plant will self-propagate and spread quickly making routine pruning necessary. 

Basics such as quality aquarium lighting, CO2 injection and aquarium soil intended for aquatic plant propagation will yield the best results. The use of root tabs or fertilizer will also help as Vallisneria absorb a lot of nutrients in the aquarium. Propagation is simple as it spreads via side shoots and is easily separated. Regular pruning is recommended as this species can grow to the height of your aquarium easily and will also anchor deep into the substrate if given the opportunity to do so.
