Last time HC flowered for me it was when winter was coming in and after flowering it almost died. HC is one of the easiest plants to grow emersed, a closed glass tank with potting soil on the bottom 3 cm will do (not mud let it dry a bit before planting), plant small bunches all around this way it will creep fast and cover the whole substrate. Don't leave in direct summer sunlight (keep in shade) make sure soil is moist spray once in a while less in winter autumn spring (once a week can even do) more in summer, withstands long periods with no watering in this kind of enclosed setup.
Cheers

Hi Ricky,

I'm using 3cm wet potting soil for the substrate and natural sunlight in an open container. It doesn't need any special care to grow emmersed.

Hi Jeff,

I live in the Houston, TX, area and was wondering how the HC might grow here emersed.

Our summer temps. are around 94 F (34 C) and the humidity starts out most days in the 90's during the summer months.

Your temperature in Indonesia and Freeman's in Greece is a little cooler than here, I hope the HC can withstand the heat here and grow the same.

Bill
