Looks possibly some kind of Sansevieria plant, possibly some variant of "Mother in Law's Tongue" or "Moonshine Snake Tongue". (who comes up with these names?!)

Moonshine Snake Tongue or Mother in Law Tongue ... :laugh: ... sounds like they were named by a voodoo practitioner from some swampland. The guy gave them to me because he thought they'd grow well in water. Guess we'll find out.

I have wondered about these. The ones I have of this type have very short roots so wasn't sure if they would take in the filters. Would be happy to hear how they work, so be sure to report back if you do end up using them!

Been wanting to do this for awhile and finally took the plunge. Instead of a hob, i used egg crate behind my glass top and have the roots in the water next to the Fx6 outlet. Anyone have experience planting this way?

i don't even have the egg crate, i just keep the plants in place by jamming them in between the tubes of my filter inlet/outlet with their roots underwater.
