I was at the Newport (Cincinnati) Aquarium the other day, and they had a lot of java ferns floating in the one display. No substrate attachment at all, just like giant duckweed.

Has anyone ever tried this? I have crazy extra java ferns right now, some on sizable rhizomes.

Did they have the ferns attached to anything, or were they free floating?

All of my java ferns are free floating at the moment, some were put in a toad vivarium and are growing emeresed, only the rhizome is in the water. They do just fine free floating, I think the only purpose the roots serve is to anchor the plant down, not used for nutrient uptake(?).
