Vallisneria or not?
Posted 03 May 2014 - 12:24 PM
I have a plant that I thought was Val... it is over 18 inches tall and bends over nicely when it reaches the surface of the aquarium... the leaves are rather narrow (not like the "eel grass" that I see in the wild in SC or south GA) but I always just assumed that was an aquarium thing, they are maybe 1/4" wide.... and this plant is doing very well in my no tech, no filtration tank... propagating itself around the tank with runners.
Recently I got another plant that was called Val... it has not grown to the surface yet... the leaves are wider maybe 1/2 inch or more... and when I was planting this it seemed to have discreet roots coming from what almost looks like a bulb at the base of the plant...
I don't think these are the same thing... which one is really Vallisneria and what might the other one be?

Here's a video:
I don't have any pictures of its root base on hand, and am not currently at home to take photos. Here's a drawing from Tropica:

This is the one that almost has bulb type roots...
