I've had these (what I assume to be Val sp.) for a while now. They get really long, about 6ft and .5in thick. Recently, the largest plant put up this see pod. It developed and started to open up only a few inches off the substrate.

Thoughts? I'm thinking it's a tiger val.

Hm, This seed pod is about the size of a quarter. In addition, runners sent out from this plant grow under the substrate. Same deal?

Bump: It really matches a Tiger Val sp.

I keep it about 2-3 ft long, the leaves hit the surface and trail along to the other side of the tank. At that point I cut them in half and remove the extra growth. Some photos of it are in my 75g thread below (signature -- its tucked behind the driftwood).
