Nature Tuesday – Hornwort Pond…is the answer

Last week in my post:

Nature Tuesday – Can you help me identify this plant? ,

 I asked for your help in identifying a plant whose photograph I found in the archive. I did not receive an answer unfortunately. I tried to find this plant with the help of my friend Google and I found out that it is a submersible plant,  an  excellent oxygenator found in ponds. It sinks to the bottom of the pond in winter to protect itself from the cold and ice and may turn black but as the water warms in the spring it will float back up and turn green again.This can also be useful for oxygenating aquarium water.

I share this picture with Nature Tuesday Challenge

    PS I want to ask you if you are opening my posts because due to the new limit I will have to reduce the number of the posts I’m opening so I’m opening only the ones from the users who are opening mine…?
