Ceratophyllum demersum

A very good oxygenator and can grow to great depths so is ideal to put in lakes and ponds. It is a free floating plant but weighting helps secure the plant in the required location. Hornwort has foliage that resembles small horns from the Greek "Ceratos" (horn).

This plant is evergreen and will retain some stems/leaves throughout winter. 

The recommended depth in water is calculated as the distance between the top of the basket and the water surface. Therefore "0" would be the basket rim at the water surface.
