Not really an aquarium plant...but...?

Ok, so I have some random plants I'm trying to get to grow some roots (they were cuttings from some plants at work) so they have been in water for now. So out of curiosity I stuck two by the filter on my 10 gallon (not full submerged, just the stalk that's rooting). Here's my question...will the plant absorb any ammonia and etc. like the aquatic plants do but just through it's roots? Thanks!!

Yes, it's possible for them to absorb the nutrients in the water. Hydroponics systems work like that.

Emersed plants actually remove much more waste than submerged plants of the same size...

I plan on trying a peacelilly emersed in my amazon tank at some point. Bamboo works well in one of my asian ones...

Thanks!

I put pothos vines in my main tank, and the other plant (no idea what it is) in my 10g. I put them directly into the filter though...my mollies thought they were nomz

Pothos vines do well in wet areas... Might want to ID the other plant though and make sure it likes wet/soggy soil.

Well the woman who gave it to me says that's how she keeps her's when trying to get them to root. I've been keeping them in water for the past 2 months and seeing (finally) a good bit of root growth.
