Starrlamia is correct. You can submerge the whole thing EXCEPT the leaves. They are not aquatic plants and the leaves will rot, die, and cause problems in your tank. However I don't think they will fare too well if you hack the leaves off. I was going to put my bamboo similar to Aokashi's but the ones you get from IKEA are about 50cm, and are quite long, so you can't put them in a tank with a hood.
