Vallisneria spiralis 'Tortifolia'


Vallisneria spiralis ´Tortifolia´ is the smaller cousin of the ‘Torta’. It grows to around 25 cm in height and is an easy plant for small aquariums and even Nano Cubes. Remarkable and ornate, this plant opens up a world of design options in combination with other aquarium plants. Not to mention the possibilities if you vary the size of the gravel. Runners will gradually pop up between the stones, making your tank look like a natural river bed with stones and plants.
