Jungle vals are VERY prolific so you may not need to get a ton to begin with. I know I prune the runners on a weekly basis. I run CO2 and ferts though with T5ho lights.

for vals no c02 required, since these plants grow and spread all over your tank like weeds.

I recommend just starting with 1 plant @ right & 1 plant in left back corner. If you have good substrate it will spred like crazy.

If you look at my albums in my profile you can see my 29G NPT with jungle Vals taking over. I use No C02, just mts with PFS cap and compact CFL vertical mounted 18W bulbs
