    My C. nurii 'Rosen Maiden' flower pretty regularly after they get big enough. C. pontederifolia does once in a while, all the rest very rarely flower. I believe some species will not flower unless grown emersed.

    In planted tank jargon, "epiphyte" refers to plants like anubias, Java fern, bucephalandra, bolbitis fern, and mosses that grow attached to solid objects (wood, stone) and do not like to be planted in the substrate. It's a loose category, and some plants are in a gray area. For example, anubias will grow on stones or wood, and might send roots down into the substrate.
