Hornwort is a floating plant, you don't plant it. I have seen some people make a structure out of PVC pipe and then wrap the hornwort around that. Once it grows in, depending on how deeply you place the PVC structure, it can look like it is planted, and creates a kind of wall effect.

Go to your local fish store and pick up some plant weights. Use a bit of foam and loosely wrap the weight around the bottom stems and place in tank. Contrary to popular belief, so called lead weights aren't made out of led.They are made out of Zinc and are 100% safe.

Plants behind small rocks are being held down by weights.

You can wrap horn wort around drift wood and filter intakes or outtakes in the tank I just wrap the plant around what ever i am thinking of attaching it to and use fishing line to tie it down very lightly so it doesn't harm the stem.
