$4.50- This also includes a helpful plant weight to keep the hornwort in place without damaging the stems.


Hornwort is a fast growing plant that prefers slow moving or still water.  It mainly grows as a floating plant, but if planted in the substrate it will grow small roots.

Height: 6-25 inches

pH: 6.0-7.5

Temperature: 60° – 90° F

Care: Moderate

Light: Medium-High

Co2: Not required

Growth rate: Very Fast


The plants will be shipped priority mail with a 2-4 day arrival time. I won’t ship below freezing temperatures.

This plant is grown in tanks with snails and duckweed, but I will do my best to make sure none of this ends up in your order!


If the plants arrive dead, send me a message with a picture of the plant within 24 hrs and I will issue a refund.

Please send me a message if you have any questions or concerns!

    The hornwort I received is beautiful and healthy. It was carefully packaged in all compostable material. Shipping was fast, and it is a great value for the plant I received. There is even a weight attached which was an amazing bonus, and made planting a snap! I am very happy!

    I am very happy with this purchase. The plants came exactly as described and look beautiful in my tank. The information card was a lovely touch as well.
