Allrighty I have a bunch of large hornwort plants. I am wonderingbecausethey do not have an actual root structure. And that it gets nutrience from the needles. Could I trim the plant in say half. And thus creating to seperate plants. Would love to i guess multiply them to spread more evenly around the tank. Thanks!

That stuff grows like crazy if it likes your water chemistry.
I prune mine every few days!lol

I've split in half my clumps several times since buying the first small ones. Have about five times as much as I originally did, and each clump is now in a different tank.

You can prune it however you like. When I had it in my tanks, I would normally just rip a clump of it off every 2 weeks. Sometimes you can get away with planting one end into the substrate, eventually it'll decay and uproot itself.
