Care Tips - Allow Ceratophyllum demersum (Hornwort) to grow until you have 30% of your pond volume filled then remove some by hand - take out the yellow/clear coloured stems not the dark green/olive brown stems in summer months.

Extra info -  The bulk of Hornwort will drop down to the bottom of the pond in winter & break down to small buds to protect itself from frost and ice. In a new pond, the stocking rate of oxygenating plants should be 2/3 portions per m² of surface area.
