Hornwort, also known as Ceratophyllum Demersum, is found worldwide. Hornworth can be used as a floating plant or as an upright stem plant.  It does not have roots but when planted, Hornworth produces rhizomes that allow it to attach to the gravel.  This plant is a fast grower and many hobbyists use in fry tanks to provide hiding places for young fish.  Because of its fast growth, Hornworth is great for planted aquariums because it will quickly absorb extra nutrients from the water column, preventing algal blooms.

    So much

    I may have over did the order because I was not expecting then to send such huge bundles of hornwort. And now I have a bucket full of it waiting for another tank!

    Packaging was great, delivery was fast. It lost literally all of its needles and turned brown, but I had read they do this, but will recover as it's a hardy plant. This is very true! It's been a few weeks, and it's already green, and new bunches of needles are growing. So, don't give up on it.

    Big bunches of these plants. A small percentage of the plants were off color and brittle. The vast majority went into the tank looking great.

    Fast shipping, very large plants. They’re a little brown but I assume that’s probably because of the shipping. They’re very full, and already in my new setup cycling. I’m pretty positive they’ll bounce back quickly. Definitely would order again

    I received 2 nice full bunches of Hornwort. I planted one in my outside pond and one in my 60 gallon aquarium.
