Contortion Val (Vallisneria Asiatica)
Vallisneria Asiatica, also known as corkscrew vallisneria, originates from Japan. It is a very attractive plant with tightly twisted light green leaves that make for an interesting and unique appearance. V. Asiatica looks best and has the most visual impact when planted in close groups of 6-10 bunches — or even more!
At Modern Aquarium, we recommend the corkscrew vallisneria plant for background planting. Learn more about care and maintenance before ordering this plant for your tank.

I ordered 8 units of val. It came in when it was supposed to, and it arrived in as good of shape as you can hope ordering live aquatic plants through the mail. I will definitely order from Modern Aquarium again in the future.
healthy robust plants, as usual!
Arrived quickly but the tips of most of the leaves had already started to melt. The roots were very healthy though and as soon as I saw new growth I cut back the old leaves and their growth has taken off.
so pretty! it looks great and my betta loves it!
Plants were well packaged and labeled. Looking forward to ordering again.
Plants arrived alive and in great condition. Doing well in my aquarium.
These showed up kind of beat up. Fedex seemed to have lost my package for a couple days so, maybe that’s the issue
I had to do double take because looked so perfect thought was fake! Great addition to tank!
Nice tall plant looks good in aquarium
Excellent plants with runners Received extra.
So far, so good.
The plant arrived in great shape! I was very pleased to see how healthy the plant was. After soaking it in room temperature for over 24 hours, I planted it in my aquarium. I hope it likes it’s new home.
