What kind of plants to grow emmersed in HOB filter?


Hi,

Can anyone recommend any plants that are suitable to grow emmersed out of the HOB filter?

I've seen a few people doing it and really like how it looks, but don't know which aquarium plants or non aquatic plants I can plant in there.

Thanks.

Almost all of the plants we grow in our tank will grow emersed. The short list is the ones that are true aquatics.

I have some silver tipped mondo grass I got as a small plant I yanked from a big plant at the home depot I work at lol, it's growing fantastically. I also have a pothos that has been in there for almost two months now... it's not really doing anything though, for some reason it hates me and refuses to grow lol.

Please keep us updated via this or the planted HOB thread, and I'm VERY interested in how this ends up.

I will have to track down Pejerry's thread then. Thanks.

I've always wondered about airplants, but I don't think they can be wet for long periods of time.

Almost any tropical plant you can find for sale as a houseplant with the exception of desert cacti.

Pothos, lucky bamboo, chinese evergreen, peace lily, and heartleaved philodendrons do really well in almost all situations.

With more light, pileas are pretty and they stall small. Purple waffle plants will in time grow large but slowly and will do very well with good lighting. Creeping fig takes a while to establish but in time it will easily take off and grow enormous. In big tanks sweet potato vine is great, with the roots down in the tank. Syngonium likes good light but will do with less and in time becomes a very sizable vine. In very good light try mint as well.

Try almost any of those little 3 inch pots of foliage available at any Walmart or Lowes. I've yet to find a plant that didn't adapt.
