I have truied Val before in aquariums and none ever made it past 5 days. Thet get mushey and die. I put these in the upper 125 gal pond and there are nom fish there. I put 3 inches of gravel in it and there was a lot of sediment there allready. So with the warm temps in Nebraska I am hoping the Val will do good and in the late fall I will bring in 30 gal of pond water and put the val inside for the winter. Looks goos so far.
This plant looked fine when it arrived but has not held up as well as I would have liked. I am going to order this again in the spring and get it in the water earlier and I think it will do fine.
These arrived in good shape and seemed to grow, then missing one plant, mushy leaves in the pond. Now there are four plants, and sparse leaves. With no experience with pond plants, this one, at least, don't know if this is normal.
These arrived as mush, called and was told to still put them in pond, wait 2 wks to see if they take, I know they will not take by the way they looked, still nothing. They said they would replace them, which was nice but I think I would rather a refund.
