Shipping calculated at checkout.

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. 

Please be aware, hornwort can be quite delicate and difficult to ship. It can be greatly stressed by high temps and sometimes falls apart in water that is very different from ours. Realize there is some risk having this plant shipped in. 

We ship approximately 2 cups of plants per order. 

  • "Caution, PLEASE READ":  Generally they ship well in temps between 20 F and 90 F (your temps and ours).
  • Choose an appropriate shipping method when ordering. Priority Mail is generally faster. Do not order with Standard ground shipping if you are more than 500 miles from us.
  • We ship plants Mon-Wed. Orders that arrive after 8 AM est, will not ship until the following business day.
  • 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 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.
  • We cannot ship these or any live items to Canada.
  • There is a small handling charge added to all orders with live items. This is because of the greater time spent packaging and the cost of insulation, heat packs if needed and the fact that the carriers do not insure anything live that is lost or damaged in transit. 
On the fence about this Aquatic Plant - Hornwort? Don't be. Rest assured that quality is our first goal.
