WOW WOW WOW I wish I could get my vals that tall...They seem to go more east and west than NORTH. Is there anything you do to encourage Northernly growth.

Not really, just the Seachem fertilizers that I mention at the top of the page. I also have a plant light (Tropic-Sun), rather than a regular white bulb.

It also depends on the type of Vallisneria that you own. I have Italian Vals (Vallisneria Spiralis) which can commonly get over 22" tall. If I am not mistaken, the Corkscrew Vals are the shortest variety. My tallest leaves are around 24" to 28" or so (Its hard to measure unless I remove the lid and the light fixture).
