Plant Profile Vallisneria spiralis 'torta'


26 Aug 2016
Plantbase submitted a new Plantbase Item:

Vallisneria spiralis 'torta'

A highly decorative variety of Vallisneria spiralis that develops in a twisted shape. Commercially, it is often known as "corkscrew vallis". Reaching a height of 30 to 50 cm, the leaves are much shorter than the original form. It is an undemanding plant in terms of cultivation, but prefers slightly stronger light than the regular V. spiralis. The 'Torta' variety is ideal for the midground of small and the background of larger aquaria.
