Jungle Val Ruby Red is a variation of regular Jungle Val. The leaves turn a red color under medium to high light. Jungle Val Ruby Red can grow in low light tanks, however, it won't have the red color. Jungle Val Ruby Red is a very easy, and hardy, plant that can go in almost any type of tank. The leaves of this plant can get upwards of 6' long, so it is good for any tank, especially large ones. It will shoot out runners along the substrate, which you can trim off and replant elsewhere in the tank.
One thing to note, when you get it in your tank, most of the older leaves will melt. This is normal. Look to see if there is new growth coming up within a few days. That is a sign that the plants going to be ok.
