^^Agreed. My tank is overwhelmed with a ginormous tangled mass of hornwort. It grows like crazy but like Oldfishlady said - it sheds like a Christmas tree. Also, don't bother attempting to anchor hornworts in the gravel/soil because they'll either remove themselves to float around or their bottoms will rot.

so Today i bought the plants i bought 3 buches of water primrose and a piece of driftwood with some javafern on. Buying soil and lamp tommorow. With the tank having soil i have read that you dont need a plant fertilliser is that true?
so my plan for the tank have the water primrose in the back and down the sides the driftwood in the middle and some pebbles in the front. sound good?

Usually you don't need added ferts in soil based tanks

I have never heard of water primrose, who did you get it from and do you have a link on it...love learning about new plants for the aquarium.....

When you aquascape-go by thirds, put your driftwood off center some

Okay...never heard it called that....

Depending on how tall and healthy they are, they are easy rooter IME and I frequently pinch them and re-plant at least weekly
