Plant Profile Vallisneria australis 'curly'


26 Aug 2016
Plantbase submitted a new Plantbase Item:

Vallisneria australis 'curly'

After Vallisneria spiralis, Vallisneria australis is the most frequently cultivated plant in this genus. The growth habit of the 'Curly' variety features attractive, bullate leaves and adds a decorative effect to any background. Large aquaria are absolutely essential here since the leaves can reach 100 - 200 cm in length. Propagation occurs via runners, which should be removed regularly to prevent uncontrolled growth. These plants thrive best in medium-hard to hard water.
