Vallisneria Spirals Red – submerged – Aquarium Strands

£6.99£31.99

Vallisneria spiralis “Red”  is a hardy plant suitable for the beginner hobbyist. It makes little demands in the aquarium and can grow fast when conditions are optimal. It also looks the best and adapts the most out of all other Vallis.

Leaves are an attractive, dark green/red when grown under optimum conditions. Great for beginners and up. All species of Vallisneria do not tolerate liquid carbon, therefore we do not recommend adding these plants to any tank using liquid carbon. Some hobbyists mistake this plant to have spiral leaves like the name might suggest but it’s actually the opposite and has very straight leaves. The word ‘spiralis’ is the scientific name that refers to the flower stalk that corkscrews as it grows.

Can also be grown in African cichlid tanks (assuming the fish don’t eat it).
