It is great at absorbing excess waste for the tank inhabitants. You may receive some green and pink stems, but don't worry that is normal.

Will order again!!!

All fish came in alive, healthy, and full of color. I’ve also gotten plants from these guys a couple time always in perfect condition as well. Honestly couldn’t recommend them more

Great piece of hornwort

I wanted to try a hearty plant because I knew the risks in my tank but wanted the benefits of plants……. My Oscars ate it, but it was nice while it lasted and they had fun! 😂

The plant arrived in good condition and growing well

It's hornwort

Only had it for a couple of weeks and it's been growing like the (basically) weed that it is. One of the few plants I truly feel comfortable keeping as I'm extremely unlikely to kill it.

Probably wouldn't order again.

Hornwort arrived decent, a little brown but looked fine. However immediately after adding it to my tank it fell apart and the pine needle type leaves floated all over my tank. Not sure if that's normal for this plant. Hoping it'll grow new leaves from the main stem. Probably wouldn't have ordered if I knew it was going to fall apart so quickly. Made a mess in my tank too.
