Ignorant Plant Question


I really hate to demonstrate how totally ignorant I can be

I have recently added Hornwort and Anacharis to my planted
tank, and both are doing *great*, which pleases me to no end.
However, I also have some of the Hornwort floating in another
breeder and have noticed that no roots are forming on this
plant. So my question is, do Hornwort and/or Anacharis put
down roots, or are they free-floating plants?

On a similar note, can I trim these plants by cutting them
to a desired height? They have both reached the top of the
tank, and then some... 8)
