Hornwort (Ceratophyllum demersum), or Coontail is an easy to grow plant that looks great in any aquarium.  It also provides a great hiding place for small fish and snails.

$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.


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

The shipping price may seem high, but to ship these size boxes priority mail it usually costs between $7.00 and $8.00 I raised the overall price to $9.00 because the cost of the shipping materials for each package costs about $2.00. This means I don’t have to add in shipping costs to the price of each individual item, which results in lower prices for items in my shop.

The water lettuce 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!
