Melted Val's

About two weeks ago my Jungle Val's. melted (I think Excel caused it) so I cut them back and they still have not recovered after two 50% W/C's. Do I rip them out or will they come back?

Most likely they'll eventually come back, but it'll be a couple months until they are back to where they were before. I noticed that after I melted all my vals the Excel didn't seem to hurt them anymore. I melted them once really good and haven't done it again since, even using the same dosing as I did before. Maybe it toughens them up? Just a guess, I'm curious if the same thing happens with you.

Yeah I managed to nuke quite a few vals with Excel a while back. It took quite a while but some of them did come back. I would leave them alone and wait it out.
