Emersed plants with wet stems


Well, does it work? I know lucky bamboo does very well in aquaria as long as its leaves are not submerged for an extended period (as my sister's lucky bamboo in her betta tank has proven); does this apply to most 'aquarium' plants that cannot grow fully submerged? Are there any other plants that would do well with this kind of treatment?

Would they do well in indirect sunlight? Currently my setup has no lights, but is near (not quite next to) a window, so it is noticibly illuminated by light from the window.

On an opposite note, do aquatic stem plants need to be misted if grown emersed if they have their emersed leaves?
