I have a piece sticking out of my 10 gallon that is doing quite well. The plant is much happier there than it was in the pot (I bought it on sale from work because it was half dead).

Everyone I've ever asked has said do NOT put the leaves under water. Eventually they will begin to rot. A breeder in my group is big into plants as well as fish and has a huge pothos growing out of a 10 (maybe 20 long) fry tank. The roots are huge and so is the plant. I don't think he has bettas in that tank though... endlers I believe.

I am researching a bit and found these pics of people who use it.

Hey guys,
I found this site looking to add the Devil's Ivy to my Betta tanks/bowls. It seems you guys are ok with it. I saw the first pic you posted in your reply. Can anyone tell me what the other plant is here? The 'ferny' looking one? I think I've got really pretty tanks and will be posting pics later. Thanks, LRW

Hey there, this thread is five years old....make sure you look at the date before posting. You can just make a new thread instead of posting on this old one.

Lil,
Yeah, I knew that. I just thought I'd take my chances since I really liked the thread. And if I didn't get any responses then I'd just start a new thread. Thanks for the guidance, LRW
