Yes. You can tie the rhizome to a piece of foam or something and put it where you want. Emersed growth is just as nice, if not nicer.

+1. Not only is it nicer, but they'll grow a pot more quickly.

Yup, This is how I keep my Java fern immersed.. in a glass casserole with water in it and tied it on rocks.
