1. **Water Conditions**: Vallisneria gigantea prefers soft to slightly hard water with a pH between 6.5 and 8.0. Make sure to maintain a water temperature between 22°C and 28°C to promote optimal growth.

2. **Adequate Lighting**: This plant requires moderate to bright lighting for optimal growth. Make sure your aquarium is equipped with adequate lighting for aquatic plants, with a daily lighting duration of approximately 10 to 12 hours.

3. **Nutrient substrate**: Use a nutrient-enriched substrate for aquatic plants or a substrate specially designed for aquariums. Make sure the substrate allows for good water circulation and allows the roots to spread freely.
