I assume you meant "Pothos." I tried to grow it submerged for a few months.
It initially developed new roots and even new leaves, but after a few months
it just stopped doing well, developed holes in the leaves, and I removed it.
This is not proof that it can't be grown submerged. ;-) Perhaps I just
didn't have the right conditions/nutrients for it (I did have CO2 injection,
but I also had fish that liked to nip at the new leaves). I know some
people are really against growing terrestrial plants underwater, but I heard
other people have had very good luck with Philodendron. I tried Pothos
because it's the closest to Philodendron I had around. ;-)
