Hornwort (Ceratophyllum dermersum) in bags

Hornwort (Ceratophyllum dermersum) sold in full size bags.  This oxygenator, Hornwort (Ceratophyllum dermersum), should be on every pond owners list. The stems branch and they are covered in crowded whorls of dark green feathery leaves.  As well as helping to keep the water fresh and healthy this native oxygenating pond plant provides a perfect environment for wildlife and spawning fish.

  • Grows in sun or part shade and in still or slow moving water.
  • Does not root therefore it is easy to control. Allow it to grow to fill about a third of your pond and simply remove any excess and put on the compost.
  • We supply Hornwort loose in bags, it can be bunched yourself or placed loose into the pond to free float and naturally sink.
  • This is the equivalent to about 30 bunches based on 5 strands per bunch.
  • As a general guide we would recommended that you use 2 bunches of oxygenator per square metre of surface water
  • Note the plant sinks to bottom of pond and over-winters as dormant buds. As the days lengthen and the water warms up in the spring the buds will begin to grow again.
  • Planting depth of water 30-90cm (12 to 36 in).
  • Contact us if you require more information. We are available between 08:30am and 16:30pm Monday to Friday and also via our email.  Our plant team will be happy to help with any queries you may have.
