Default Small pond question...

Spathiphyllum. Anthurium shold be ok too.

These tropicals will stretch and lean in dense shade. The Anthurium would
probably rot in wet soil unless she finds an aquatic type.

They work fine. Honest. 10,000 betta vase owners can'tbe wrong.

What variety of Anthuriam are you talking about? I have one on a sunny
windowsill that has a red spathlike flower once in awhile but it doesn't
like the soil to be too wet, just nicely damp. I rotted the last one by
overwatering it. :-(

I also have Spathiphyllums and they will be happy sitting in water and they
do in the summer. I sit them outside under a tree in pans of water or in the
kiddy-pools of fish. They have a large white spathlike flower that smells
heavenly. But now they like dappled sunlight, not dense shade. They get
spindly-looking in deep shade and lean over towards the light - not real
