What is the right way to plant corkscrew val? I picked up a nice batch off Aquabid and I don't want to screw it up by planting it wrong.

Pretty easy, just protect the roots while digging a hole in the substrate then bury the roots. Depending on how developed the roots are you might just be able to gently pinch them and just lead the way with your fingers. If the root system is more developed you might have to make a cone shape with your hand.

I was just thinking that you shouldn't bury the crown (base of new leaves) - just the roots, so the val doesn't have any problem putting up new leaves.
