Emersed plants, no humidity??

I have 2 rimless cubes 10" and 12".

The top is open and I want plants to grow out of the aquarium. I have brazilian pennywort growing out of the water on a piece of driftwood that sticks out of the water.

Does hydrocotyle japan, ludwigia repens, rotala colorata, rotala indica, moneywort, water sprite, water wisteria, stargrass grow out of the water with no humidity?

What are some other plants that grow well out of water, such a wabikusa plants.

I would like this also

Most plants will grow emersed. It's easier to list the ones that won't. Try http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/plantfinder/index.php in the lower right corner there is a selection for "Can be grown emersed". It will list them according to that.

I grow my hydrocotyle japan emersed at room humidity just fine. You just need to slowly adapt it to drier air.
