I have some lucky bamboo that was given to me before it was going to be thrown away at work. It's just in water and is doing great. I was thinking of planting it in the gravel of a 30 gallon tank. It's tall enough that the leaves will be out of the water and I think that the stalks will be a nice looking feature in the tank.

Lucky Bamboo is a semi Aquatic plant. Great in filters though.

One method is that if you use a HOB filter, you can remove the filter lid and grow the plant directly out of the area that contains the filter media. Some people also choose to baffle the filter with some aquarium sponge and then attach moss to this, as the constant water flow from the filter keeps the whole area moist.

There are lots of aquarium plants and bog plants that can be used successfully in this manner. I think I saw someone growing some kind of orchid out of the top of his filter along with a pothos that had been trained along his light stand.

Here's a link to someone in Australia planting up their HOB filter with moss and various other plants.
