Hornwort (Ceratophyllum demersum)
Hornwort submerged pond plant is an excellent oxygenating pond plant. Hornwort resembles an underwater juniper bush, with multiple branches of thick, dark green foliage. Hornwort forms a dense mat and does not develop roots. Like other submerged pond plants, it receives nutrients from the water and helps keep water clear. Baby fish love to hide in this submerged plant because of its dense growing habit. Use one bunch for every 2 square feet of surface area, simply attaching weights and sinking to the bottom of the pond.
