"Betta in a Jar" sounds a bit like "Bird on a Wire" or zingy jazz combo.
Great idea, maybe I should do the same with Guppies "Guppies by the Gallon"
or other livebearers? Forget the romantic tropical stream running through
Eden! Thousands of jars in every room, NO potting...ever? Maybe "Platy
in a Pot" is the way to introduce Ireland to house plants & aquarium fish?
What I REALLY would like to know is which kinds will & which kinds won't &
why a proportion of waterlogged plants NOT in sand or compost at optimum
temperature etc objected. I had planned to rely on stream culture but
cannot take that chance yet.. I am trying various experiments to try to
ascertain why, so far, success is limited. So any observations on
waterlogging of any aroid might accelerate my finding solutions for the
Chuckles to all

Hey Ron...there was a craze here in the USA, well, maybe just the Midwest,
with spathiphyllum plants being grown in huge glass jars...the kits were
sold by Walmart and included colored marbles for the jar, a beta fish and a
spathiphyllum...the roots of the spath grew down into the jar, kept the fish
fed and happy and the plant happy...these "arrangements" were seen in dental
offices, doctor's offices, bank lobbies, restaurants, and anywhere else you
could imagine; those who had one, loved them...
I have seen spaths offered in the water garden areas in garden
centers/nurseries and have seen them growing pretty much as emergent
