  • Colony Notes: We list care level as Medium because improper conditions can suddenly lead to massive die offs with the plant shedding “needles” all over the floor, which can lead to further water quality issues. Consistent moderately flowing water with decent light and ample nitrogen waste/nutrients should make this plant bulletproof. Take exception to how fast hornwort grows and quickly starts to block out light. The bottom-most hornwort and your other plants can then be susceptible to die offs.
