Hornwort or Ceratophyllum is a super easy to grow plant for your planted aquarium. Hornwort is sometimes called Guppy Grass. I am not sure why it is called Guppy Grass. The obvious answer is that it is great for breeding guppies and other small fishes. The small leaves on Hornwort are perfect for small fry to hide from predators. What else I like about Hornwart is how fast it grows.

Aquarium plants that grow at this kind of rate make for great "filtering" type plants. They can grow and absorb excess nutrients in your planted tank. We have lots of this plant and other fast growing filter plants like Java Moss and Duckweed. Just let us know what you are looking to do.

This plant has super fine leaves which will grow quickly as we have stated, however because of this, expect some of these leaves to fall off initially in your aquarium. This is normal.  It will grow back new growth almost as quickly as it dropped a few :)

Don't Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!

Plants arrived in good condition. So far, they have stood up to some serious beatings from my goldfish. Though I did need to put a pre-intake sponge filter on the intake valve to my canister filter because the needles get pretty messy (from said beatings) and clog it up otherwise.

Great Customer Service

Due to no fault of the company, our hornwort delivery was delayed for a week due to the bad weather. We tried to salvage the plants but they sadly were too far gone. I reached out to Customer Service and they shipped us a replacement order. Replacement has already arrived and is perfect! It is shedding a bit but that's just hornwort! It'll stop doing that soon, and this plant is definitely worth the initial cleanup. Thanks for the speedy replacement, you guys!!!! Always impressed with this company and the quality of the plants.

It's been a horrible experience for me due to unseen circumstances, the bad weather delayed my package here in Memphis for an additional 5 days I guess the freezing weather did them in,I put in my tank,anyways and for the past 2 days I have been vacuuming out needles ,I gave up and threw it away,like I, said the shipping was delayed it was a huge stress on the plant well I know ,I don't ever want to deal with hornwort again,maybe you can give me a suggestion for a plant for my frys and also gets the nitrates out thankyou,and Dustin I was happy with all my other plants I ordered from you! Thankyou

The Hornwort foliage was falling off the vine making a large mess. I expected a little mess but I had to clean up the tank. The other plants looked somewhat okay.


Disliked this plant! It looked all old and brown! Sent messages about the condition of arrival plant. No response.
