I’m growing hornwort in one corner of my aquarium and I am getting tired of hacking away 3 cubic miles of plant each week and trying to give it away. (That was hyperbole for it grows fast).

I was thinking about growing Cabomba furcata as a floating plant in its place. Has anyone ever tried this?

I know Cabomba is tricky but I have a high light, pressurized CO2 aquarium and I’d like the challenge.

It sounds like you have conditions which will allow you to grow almost anything you want. Is there a reason you chose hornwort? If it's for floating reasons, almost any stem you put in there will soon reach the surface, and will 'look like' a floating plant. :)

The hornwort came in as a weed, one tiny sprig.

As it grew I realized that it worked well in the upper corner of my aquarium away from the filter outlet. I tied it in place and it really took off.

Now it has outlived its usefulness and I’d like to replace it.

I hear you. ;) Back when I couldn't grow plants, I could grow hornwort. If it grew slower, it would be a pretty plant with its bushiness.
