Vallisneria nana is a solitary contrast plant with dark green, rosulate, narrow leaves. It is extremely suitable as a mid-ground plant, but can also be used as a background plant in small aquariums. The leaves are much narrower than with other species of Vallisneria, nor are they quite as long. In its natural habitat in northern Australia Vallisneria nana reaches a height of only 15 cm, but in aquariums it typically grows to 30-50 cm, which no doubt reflects the different light and nutrient conditions. Vallisneria nana produces offshoots very readily, so compact vegetation will soon develop in good conditions. [TROPICA]

In my experience, Val nana reaches an overall length of around 42" in my 24" high 65gl if aloud to drift along the surface.

i had these at one point in my 65 gallon and they took over the tank like weeds, they can easily grow to 40 inches and will start new offshoot plants daily
