Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Our Delivery Promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.

If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Vallisneria asiastica is a delightful plant with wonderful curls to it and is really an eye-catcher. It also loves good lighting. A very easy to grow plant although they prefer the water temperature to not be too warm. Ideal for beginners as they are so undemanding and require very little maintenance.

They will grow fine in gravel however add some root tabs for nutrients or go for a nutrient-rich substrate such as Tropica Aquarium Soil. They throw off runners which can later be cut off and re-planted where ever you desire or alternatively let them grow and spread naturally and create a certain effect. Note that all vallis is intolerant of liquid carbon and can melt if dosing it at the same time as growing this plant.

Vallisneria asiatica bunches consist of approximately 3 plants which are approximately 20-25cm in length.

Note: This plant does not come with the weight in the picture. As it is a true aquatic plant there are chances of snails or snail eggs. As we buy from European stock, pesticides are never used. Whilst we do our very best to remove any snails that we see, we wanted to make you aware that this is a possibility.

Lastly, all Vallis can be somewhat sensitive to new water parameters. In the event that your Vallis melts once submerged, it's down to the water conditions of your aquarium and this means the responsibility lies with you the customer, and not Aqua Essentials. We only ever send out perfect plants so please bear this in mind.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...
