Mail Order: What To Expect

Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Vallisneria will arrive in Bunches (several stems or groupings of plants). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!

Planting Instructions

Plant several bunches of Vallisneria together submerged in a planter with aquatic planting media or simply tie the bunch to a weight and drop into the desired section of your pond or water garden.


Fertilization is typically not needed for Vallisneria as they take excess nutrients from your pond water. If needed, Microbe-Lift® Bloom & Grow™ can be used.

Plant Maintenance

For best results, trim leaves as they begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.

Winter Care

When performing fall maintenance tasks, cut back Vallisneria to 1" above the pot and submerge back into center of pond. This stops winter die off from entering the pond as decaying debris.

I'm assuming that #1 is the lowest rating. Plants were in very poor condition, mushy, and just dissolved in the pond.
