    it might work with any really. try somthing like a lava rock and grow it out of the tank. submerge the rock in water so it stays moist. once they have grown down into the rock and it anchors its self put it into the aquarium. id use a big rock...... but ive never tried this so i have no clue what would happen.

    Seems fine to me, since most of mine grow their stolons outta the bottom of the pot into the water dish, and those seem to be very vigorous growing.

    I put a division of U. livida on a rock, tied it down, and put it in an aquarium under some PC's. Hopefully it won't rot!

    If that doesn't work, then I'll just buy/trade for U. graminifolia. I'l love to try something like U. tricolor or U. dichotoma. I hope one of the utric buffs chime in!

    dont see why it wont work but i doubt you will see flowers. try U. tricolor, it should like the warm water of a tropical fish tank and i have yet to find a way of killing the SOB other than extended drought

    I agree with rattler on the tricolor. I'd also recommend dichotoma as I have heard that in habitat it is ofthen found submerged under significant water levels. And appearantly its morphology changes when it grows this way.

    And you can always try subulata since it is such a tenacious beast...

    I also agree with the U. dichotoma, mine flowers a whole heck of a lot after its been submerged under water.
