From experience, yes!
As to exactly why, I don't know. I'd be interested to know though! :)

I use easycarbo (similar to excel) every day and have vallis spiralis growing nicely. Initially it and vallis americana died off, americana never recovered - but that might be because my tank is brackish - but my vallis spiralis has recovered and is doing nicely. I think that if I'd carried on dosing daily then neither would have survived but I just dropped the dosing sometimes not dosing for over a week until i noticed the recovery
