Good plants that can emerge from the tank?

I just set up another planted tank and was trying to figure out what some good plants were that will come out of the top of the tank. Any suggestions please let me know! Thank you

Are you looking for a lily type come out, or a bamboo type come out?

well the lily pad type plants just sit on the surface of the water and put out blooms occasionally. A bamboo type has roots down in the water and the stalk comes all the way out and puts leaves up into the air. I think it depends on how your tank is set up and what kind of scape you are looking for.

Okay thanks I think the bamboo kind would look the best. What are some good ones?

I'm actually not sure, you might google semi-aquatic aquarium plants. The only one's I know of are bamboo and water iris (which I've only grown in ponds).

Ludwigia repens comes out of the tank i saw it do this at my lfs and it looked pretty cool. And hygrophilia compacta can also do this
