Several plants used in aquaria can be grown out of water or only
partially submerged - provided the soil is quite wet and the humidity
in the aquaterrarium is high (which is almost by the definition).
I think some or all Cryptocorine sp. should do fine in such conditions.
Anybody with more experience wants to comment?
