Hornwort - Ceratophyllum demersum - Dennerle Portion
The hornwort is a cosmopolitan, found in many waters worldwide. We found the free-swimming stem plant in huge populations in a tributary of the Rio Miranda on the edge of the Pantanal in South America. The growth rate of the stems is enormous, so it must be permanently cut back. Ceratophyllum is considered a "wonder weapon" against algae growth. The explanation is quite simple: the plant is a strong nutrient consumer and deprives the algae of their food basis. The use of hornwort is recommended for any new setup.
Our recommendation: For a magnificent plant growth we recommend the use of the NatureHolic fertilizer series and for new set up the premium nutrient medium NatureHolic GroundBooster.
Expert Tip: With the NatureHolic plant glue you can glue this plant gently and easily to stones, roots and decoration . Made in Germany, the adhesive does not pollute the water and has no negative impact on the stocking.
