        Fresh Hornwort, No Issues, Will Buy Again

        This was my first experience with APF and with Hornwort. The plants were fresh, green, and bundled well for transport and integration into my tank. I didn't have any issues with tons of pine needles falling off or with snails. This was an excellent experience and I will certainly buy from here again. Also, the 2 for 1 was certainly appreciated!

        Great Plant

        The Hornwort arrived well packaged and perked right up, when planted in my tank. I also bought the Malaysian driftwood with hole to anchor the Hornwort in my gravel substrate. Worked great!

        I want them to work…

        Since they don’t take root, and easily snaps, most of the 3 bundles (buy2get1) ended up getting tossed. I tried planting them, but by the next hour they were floating. I tried anchoring them by tying them down or super gluing them to weights/decorations, they ended up snapping apart, and again floating at the top. And with them floating around food got caught around them and their pines just ended up falling off. I tossed more than half away because they ended up just stems! I still have a couple in a cup of aquarium water. Idk what to do with them, but I don’t want to just toss them away either. I want them to work!!
