Vallisneria spiralis is another classic aquarium plant. This undemanding variety produces ribbon-like leaves between 0.8 and 1.5 cm wide. Leaves of up to 1 m have been recorded. Care and cultivation are easy, and these plants are helpful in building a living green backdrop. Runners that grow in the front area should be removed regularly. The species name “spiralis” refers not to the leaves, but to the spiralling flower stalks. This is a perfect addition to any cichlid aquarium.
