The giant Vallisneria is a highly variable aquatic plant that is native to Australia. Its long, narrow leaves can reach almost unbelievable sizes - up to 3 m in length is not uncommon. It is extremely popular for use in discus aquariums and setups for East African cichlids from the Malawi and Tanganyika Lakes. These fish need fairly hard water, which can be a problem for a lot of plants. Vallisneria australis ´Gigantea´ actually prefers it.
