Emersed Echinodorus

I don't think there are _any_ Echinodorus species which are obligate
submersed plants.  Simply lower the water level, and keep the tank covered
to retain humidity. (many species can not tolerate the low humidity levels
in modern heated homes)  That's it.  Your plants will do the rest.
