    Default Is this what Hornwort should look like?

    I just bought this from my LFS. The only thing that I don't understand is that it's supposed to be a floating plant, but it really just sits mid-water. Parts of it just sank to the bottom, which I threw away since it should propagate quick enough. Hornwort 1.jpgHornwort 2.jpg

    That seems about right to me. Yea it doesn't float to the very top like duckweed would.

    Yes that is hornwort. If you want you can stick one of the hornwort into the substrate to anchor it. It may stay anchored for a few weeks but eventually will rot a bit and float back out. It's a great plant though, grows quickly and sucks up nitrates.

    Best way to keep it anchored down would be to use some fishing line and a piece of ceramic bio ring. If you tie it just right, you can plant the bio ring in the gravel and it wont move. I do this with my moss all the time and it works great. If you have a spare pieceof bio ring its free too. The ones with holes in the middle works the best for me tho.
    I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
    gotta love them bunnies!

    I have Hornwort and yes as Korith stated, the base rotted on me as well and most of it floated to the top where it does great!
