Product Overview

Hornwort (Ceratophyllium demersum)

Hornwort submerged pond plant is an excellent oxygenating pond 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 helps keep 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 plants came quickly as stated and were in very good condition. I just wish that I had understood that the weights did NOT come with them as was with the case of another company I previously ordered the hornwort . It would be helpful if you recommended the weights as an additional purchase on the site.

    I purchased 10 bunches of Hornwort. They were all a very nice size and in excellent condition. Will purchase again next year.

    I got the Hornwort in two days and it’s just lovely. It was still moist in great packaging. It’s super healthy and the bunches are much bigger than I expected.

    My plants arrived in only 3 days and were in great shape. Followed the directions provided and a couple weeks later the plants look great. They've expanded to twice the size I had them, my fish and frogs that have moved into my pond love it.
