Product Overview

Hornwort aka Coontail (Ceratophyllium demersum)

Hornwort submerged pond plant is an excellent US native oxygenating plant. Hornwort resembles an underwater juniper bush, with multiple branches of thick, dark green foliage. Hornwort forms a dense mat and does not develop roots. Like other submerged pond plants, it receives nutrients from the water and especially good at keeping water clear. Baby fish love to hide in this submerged plant because of its dense growing habit. Use one bunch for every 2 square feet of surface area, simply attaching weights and sinking to the bottom of the pond.

Minimum purchase of 5.

Hardiness Zone: 5-11
Light Requirements: Full Sun to part shade
Height: 8-10 feet
Water Depth: 1' - 10'

Cannot be shipped to Puerto Rico.

    The hornwort arrived very quickly. It was healthy and ready for the pond. Bunched together for easily attaching weights. Just what the pond needs to stay clear and beautiful. Thanks.
