Hornwort: This floating plant is in most of our lighted tanks. It is a very rapid grower and has all of the positive characteristics of fast growth - which means it's removing nitrates and phosphates at a high rate. It's a water purifier. It also helps slow or eliminated algae growth.
We ship approximately 2 cups of plants per order.
"Caution, PLEASE READ":Plants are not guaranteed, so be sure the weather is appropriate before ordering. We pack them well, but they will not handle below freezing conditions or extreme heat for long. Night-time lows and day-time highs are both important. You should check our weather also (zip 14760). Generally they ship well in temps between 20 F and 85 F.
Choose an appropriate shipping method when ordering. Priority Mail is generally faster than Ground if you are more than 500 miles from us.
Preferably, have them sent to a place where they will not sit in the sun or freezing temps. PO Boxes are good. Business addresses are good. Mailboxes outside are not a good idea unless you're sure to get them out right away. If they sit in the sun for a long time, they they can get too hot.
We have ramshorn and apple snails in all our tanks, and there will likely be snails or their eggs on the plants when you receive them.
