1. Not sure about max size. Mine I had to trim or it would continue to grow along the top of the tank.
2. Doesn't seem to much matter planted or floating.

Hornwort is great as it grows in any condition and adds oxygen to the tank as well as keeps algae at bay ...

You can plant it or float it ... I always plant mine and in my fry tanks I let it float in big clumps & knots so the fry feel secure and they love to hide in it.

How tall does it grow? Well sky is the limit really... I have seen it hit 40 inches easily....

Have fun planting :malelovies:

I love hornwort. Although it can be planted, it really shouldn't. It is a floating plant.

ok...i didn't really think that there was a max size on it but i wasn't sure.

so it seems to me that it does better floating...just by what you are all telling me.

It grows just as fast either way... it really is not a fussy plant at all :19:
