Hymenocallis spider lilies are pretty great, too. I tried several different species in ripariums and had the best results with H. traubii...

Ohh, I like all of those! Thanks! They're on "the list" now.
Luckily I don't have any cats or dogs. But I'll be sure to not eat it myself.

If you go with a peace lily, be aware that it is toxic to cats and dogs.

Emersed Plants that Flower
Aglaonema Gemini (Chinese evergreen) has a white, tube like flower. They grow very well emersed. I grow them in my terraphyte tanks.

Asclepias curassavica is a good one. It's very easy to bloom...
Ruellia brittoniana is another good choice...

Best flowering plants for ripariums
I was wondering which plants produce the best flowers for a riparium? Maybe it's a little far fetched to hope to get a water lily to bloom, but is there anything else with nice looking flowers?
I was thinking that a peace lily is a good place to start. I also really love Utricularia graminifolia, but I don't know how easy it is to get UG to flower.
