I find the idea of talking baloney quite disturbing :)

But seriously....I seem to remember from basic Biology that over 95% of 
*all* vascular plants have mycorrhizae.  I'd imagine any aquatic plant with 
roots that grow in and draw nutrients from soil, especially the heavy root 
feeders, would have the potential for them.  Nice job of debunking the 
baloney, Tom.  Very interesting stuff.

What's next...aquatic lichen?
