Jungle Red Vallisneria 

Jungle Red Vallisneria originates from North America. It is a highly attractive variant of the Vallisneria species with interestingly twisted olive green leaves that may even turn red under good conditions and bright light.

Care & Maintenance

When provided with sufficient lighting, this is an easy to keep plant that will do well in most water conditions. Under good conditions, it grows fast and will reach about 6-10 inches in length. It propagates from daughter plants produced by runners.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 70-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Background

Jungle Red Vallisneria looks best when planted in groups in the back or the sides of the aquarium.

    Very healthy, clean plants. Buying more!
    Posted by RICHARD JOSEPH on 15 Apr 2024

    Shipping took a few extra days, but the plants still arrived healthy and alive. They were very clean, with only the slightest hint of algae on the leaf tips. They were planted in my deep substrate tank with no filter and no light except a sunny window. After a week, runners and new leaves began to grow. There was no melting, but the old leaves are now dying back as the new ones emerge. I ordered more for my other tank, and I will buy again from Modern Aquarium in the future.

    It's been a couple of months since my order arrived. Very happy with this Jungle Red. I planted three bunches and all are doing very well on the side of my tank

    Larger than expected!
    Posted by Lauren on 18 May 2023

    My jungle red came in one bunch with five different leaves coming off of it. Each leaf was over a foot long, and needed to be trimmed before I put them into my tank. The leaves themselves were coated pretty heavily at the ends with algae from the supplier's stock tank. After a month, all five leaves have survived, are thriving, and a second jungle red plant has shot off of the original plant! Would definitely recommend for beginners and for your background.

    When I have ordered similar plants from other sources they often come half dead. Not this time. These came in great shape and are doing very well. Very satisfied.

    Excellent plant, vibrant green. Had a little green algae attached to it, but it came right off. My betta loves laying on this plant.

    I purchased this same plant from Amazon and it arrived as brown mush. I then purchased from MA and I'm a convert. The order came perfectly packed and very well-rooted. Amazing plants!
