It turns out you can grow sweet Potatos in water. You can also grow purple Heart plants in water. The ones I saw have been in water for 3 months.

If you can think of more plants that can grow in filter do not forget to add them.

I am wondering if this could technically qualify as aquaponics?

These are for plants that are completely submerged. They were designed with bare bottom tanks in mind.

Wow lovely. I found only one problem with filter plants. The person had a 10 foot vine. The roots grew so much that it clogged the filter.

Pothos growing out of the filter benefits you too they remove certain dangerous air chemicals and the plants are not Tied down by CO2 in the air because there is a lot of CO2 in the air or atleast more than water. Technicaly anuibus could be grown like this but would have to have something like a clear object to help humidity which land anuibus needs.
