Will sword plant grow as terrestrial?
Not emersed with its roots in the water, but planted in a pot? My red
sword plant (not sure which variety) has another flower stalk. It is
sticking up 2 feet out of the hood, with big white flowers. The plantlet
at the end of the stalk has nice round red leaves, and has not started
forming roots yet. If I shove the stalk back into the tank, several but
not all of the nodes will root and make new plants. I thought I might
pin it down in some potting soil and try air-layering it. Does it have
a chance, or do the roots really need to be in the water? Thanks.
