    You mean plants that will grow up out of the water, or plants that will grow in a dry start?

    I can offer a few, but there's:
    Aquatic plants that can grow up out of the water;
    Aquatic plants that will do well in a dry start, completely dry (but humid);
    And terrestrial plants that grow well with just their roots in the water, hung on the back of the tank or in a HOB filter.

    Which are you looking for?

    Many

    Most plants will grow emergent, however the best plants are ones with very rigid sturdy stems to support growth. My persicaria and hygrophila have been really good growing above the surface and out of the water. Keep in mind plants growing out of the water will quickly grow and take up more room than originally designated which could cause issues with nutrients balance as well as light distrubution.
    THE CAKE IS A LIE!
