Several years ago I had a cattail seed germinate in one of my tanks, and it became a pretty little plant with slightly twisted leaves with a 'window screen' pattern of veins. It got big rapidly and produced straight floating leaves and was preparing to send up emersed leaves when I pulled it out. If I had trimmed it back and kept it small, it probably would have remained in its submersed form. A group of these small plants would be quite decorative.

This time of the year, cattails are going to seed. Try collecting a bunch of the seeds and germinating them.
