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.

    Healthy Green Beautiful Bunches

    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.

    I ordered this and several others from lilyblooms (iris, marsh marigold, clover). All plants came quickly. All plants were in good shape. They are in my little pond and doing well!

    plants were black brittle and dead

    I tracked my package and made sure I was there to put them in my pond asap but when I opened the box and removed the plants that were wrapped in newspaper and then in a plastic bag I found my hornwort at the bottom black and brittle. The rest of the plants I ordered were beautiful and green.

    Gone With The Fish ...

    Posted by Unknown on May 17th 2016

    The Hornwort cuttings that I received in my order appeared to be freshly cut and healthy; they were a vivid green color. With anticipation of the soon-to-be plush foliage, which would provide shelter and protection for my koi and other fish from the wicked blue heron, I attached the bendable lead weights and dropped the cuttings strategically into the pond. But,,alas, all of the cuttings had disappeared within a matter days, apparently feasted upon by the fish.
