Vallisneria americana also called Corkscrew Val, is a wide blade, grass-like plant, in which the leaves form an attractive corkscrew appearance. It is green in color and can be placed in a variety of locations within the aquarium.
Reproduction with this plant occurs through runners set out by the plant. Allow the new plant to develop a root system and immature leaves prior to separating it from the mother plant. At that time, it can then be planted in a different location, or simply left in the same position.
The Corkscrew Val benefits from regular additions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements.
