Hornwort (Ceratophyllum demersum)


A longtime favorite among aquarists and water gardeners, Hornwort is widely distributed throughout North America and will thrive in a wide variety of conditions. Fast growing and with delicate, needle-like leaves, Hornwort will grow in dense stands under appropriate lighting and is popular as an oxygenating pond plant as well as with aquarium fish and invert breeders as it provides a perfect site for egg laying or cover for juvenile fish or shrimp. Hornwort can be planted like a stem plant or just left to float.
