My question is:
Do you like your hornwort? Why or why not?
We have some. A bunch actually. Haven't had it long. Maybe 2 weeks? No problem with leaves falling off yet. From across the room I like the way it looks, but up close it looks like a rat's nest to me. The frogs love it, though. Who am I to argue?
I am curious about how it holds up long-term too. The other half of the household brought it home, and I was wary of putting it in the tank for the same reasons. Hopefully someone who's had more experience with it will have some better info.
