 Subject: Growing plants emersed
 Does anyone know where I could find info on how to grow plants emersed? ie: 
 What plants grow emersed? How much water? Soil? Light duration? Anything 
 that is different from growing plants submerged.
 Thanks, Daniel
Check out any oriental aquatic plant side, they are mostly grown emersed in 
Rockwool. I have heard that most of Tropica's plants are also grown that way. 
Don't know if this is fact or fiction ?

If the humidity is high enough above the water, most plants will grow 
emersed, I have seen hobbyist who raise good aquatic swords etc in a 
terrarium type setup inwhich just the plant roots were submersed and the rest 
of the plant was grown in a hot humid terrarium.
