I have some Egeria densa in my tank and its growing like stink. I am going to cut it down a few inches and let it float until I can plant it. I am wondering, if I put it in a normal bowl of water and placed it in the window, would it grow?
i have never heard of growing like stink before... lol. Stem plants generally grow very well anywhere after they get established. You could probably grow it successfully in a jar s long as you dose ferts and its not too cold for the plant.
