Absolutely!  But if your water is too hard for Glossostigma, it's probably
just right for Lilaeopsis.  Steve Pushak just gave me a small start of a
Marsillea that he says is more adaptable than either Glossostigma or
Lilaeopsis, but I still have it in a propagation tray on a windowsill, so I
can't say much about it under tank conditions.  If it grows well in
slightly harder water it will give close to the same look as Glossostigma.
