They are just planted in shower caddies stuck to the side of the tank and filled with hydroton clay balls. However, I'm planning a major rescape in which I'm planning on creating a proper island for all the emergent plants.

Most of the plants seem to take a few weeks to adapt to hydroculture, during which time the old root stock dies off and they then grow a whole new root system suitable for emersion in water.
