Yeah I love those giant vals, for a larger tank I haven't found a better natural background either. Most other plants have longer stems and then balloon out if left alone. A giant val fills out the same surface area from the substrate to however tall you want to let them go. I have seen them take off in a low light/low tech tank also. Just an all around versatile plant that can be used to cover the back, equipment, or fill out a specific area.
