What plants can grow in water?


Many aquatic plants can thrive in water. Some common examples include water lilies, lotus flowers, and hyacinths. These plants usually have specialized adaptations to survive submerged or partially submerged environments like floating leaves or oxygen-releasing roots.

In more detail, different types of aquatic plants grow in varying levels of water depth. For example, deepwater species such as hornwort and java moss prefer fully submerged conditions while shallow-rooted plants like duckweed float on top of the surface. Each has specific requirements that need consideration before introducing them into your garden pond or aquarium setup.
