Anybody else out there growing their plants emersed on their windowsill? I’ve had this plant for a while and decided to grow it out of the tank instead of throwing it out. Stuck it in a jar with some aquasoil and transitioned it with some plastic wrap and humidity. Glad I did. Looks like it’s going to flower soon.

Very cool! Please post a picture of the flower. Thanks!
I will! The flower is tiny and not very colorful.

Cool. What species of Hydrocotyle is it? So you are growing it in wet soil, not from under water to emerge.
It’s tripartita. Exactly. It’s just in wet soil. I pulled it from a tank a while ago. Then placed it in a jar with some ads soil and misted it daily and covered the jar with plastic wrap. A few weeks later I poked holes in the plastic wrap and now it has fully crossed over to emerged. I just add a little water from the tap every day and it uses the nutrients from the tap and soil.
