Any help would be much appreciated. The hornwort has been in my cycled tank for 1 week and the base is buried in my gravel substrate.
Thank you in advance

Nails are not always the preferred way to maintain iron levels in an aquarium, but I have done it, and with good results. As for rust, obviously you should not leave them in the tank for more than a month.
Of course, a high quality plant nutrient solution is the best, I recommend Flourish.
I wasn't talking about anything of mine. I don't own hornwort. =] I was talking about the original post for the thread where he was asking for advice abouh his
I figured you wouldn't leave the nail in for long and that if you do it right it can be beneficial but I was just saying that I'm a paranoid person and wouldn't try it myself because with my (very) bad luck I'd manage to mess it up.
