I've got a lot of Val, not sure what kind it is. You can have it all, about 10-20 stems for $5. I've got frog bit ($5) and bacopa (free) too. Brought it from Petland Kahala cheap a couple of months ago labeled as corkscrew Val, but it turned out to be more long and flat. It had a ton of snail and snail eggs, but I think I got rid of most of it. It grew too fast in my nano, so I replanted it all in my kid's outside nympahrium. The two nymphs just left though (either turned into dragonflies or got eaten, and I want to do something else with the tank. There might be some algae from being outside, I haven't looked at it closely in a while.
Stuff looked brown at the store, and most of the original leaves melted or I trimmed them off the first month, but Val grows so fast that new super healthily leaves and baby plants can reach the top of your tank in about two weeks. No kidding. You can literally watch it grow.
You can try to PM me, I've got to figure out how to respond.
