Spider plants do love aquariums, for about two weeks. After that, they will
begin to drown and rot. I sometimes submerge new spider plant adventitious
plantlets in an aquarium for a few days to hydrate them prior to potting and
they love this. I know some pet stores also sell them as aquarium plants,
but they aren't. Try getting some Hygrophila plants instead. Try H.
difformis or H. stricta. These are beautiful bright green plants that grow
easily and very quickly if given the right conditions. They are also easy
to propagate, as are most stem plants, by simply sticking the top cuttings
into the gravel.
