Mine shed it nettles everywhere, always. No matter how long it was in there, even after it destressed.
It'd throw a fit and whine and just phwump. Dropped em.

If you cant return it and dont want it, I sent mine to a Betta Rescue that Im friends with on fb- they were grateful, because it helped keep their tanks healthier and needed less water changes :D (Betterbettarescue)

Ooh, and watersprite is nice. Its a little whiney, as it doesnt like sudden changes in the water, but its pretty.

I keep my wisteria rooted, it seems to do better that way, and my fish derp in it and get borderline stuck /__\ they so dumb.

I put newly purchased hornwort in a side container with tank water. With each water change I dumped the old hornwort water and replaced it with the tank water being siphoned out. This removed the shedding while acclimating the plant to the tank water.

After about a week or two once I noticed fewer shreds during container dump I dropped the horny into the main tank

I gave up on the thing. It's resting peacefully with the lawn clippings and may I never see its little bald root butt again. It wasn't worth returning for its price and I have a feeling by the time I shipped it to a betta rescue or a friend, it would have been utterly bald. Plants instinctively hate me, I think. I want water sprite but I haven't found any around here and for some reason the one website I found with it can't ship it to CA. Well, it IS considered an invasive species, I guess. I also want Java Moss but same thing, I can't find it.

Uggh. I feel for you. I got rid of all my hornwort because it made an absolute mess of my tank.

I ended up tossing it all in a ginormous bucket of water outside and a bunch of frogs decided to make it their new home. :)

I'll have to try that website. Right now I'm broke. :/ Who knew fish were so expensive? Gravel, plants, tanks . . . ah well. So worth it.

I love your avatar. What a handsome crowntail. I love his coloring and markings.

I'm just glad I only bought one bunch of the stuff. I kept thinking, "It's a 10g, it needs more plants." Good thing I decided to go with extra Amazon Swords instead.
