Tropica _does_ clearly label these plants as non-aquatic in their catalog.
I haven't seen the labels for these (although I have seen the labels for
their aquatic species) so I can't answer why the plants are labeled as they
are.   I asked Claus why the company even produces them.  He told me that
they don't really want to, but when they tried not offering them for a
while, they got so many requests for them that they felt that they had to
offer them once more.
