Most plants, in fact, will flower, Bacopa etc but if allowed to grow out of the Water, Lace plants will do so but you risk sending the plant into dormancy, and waiting quite a while to break the dormancy.

Lace plants must be in optimum quality water that supports no Algae because get Algae on the leaves and you can bin it due to the delicate nature of the fenestrations.

No problem, nature is amazing, Google Victoria amazonica, incredible plant as it's method of pollination.

they're definitely one of those plants that makes you wonder just how they evolved

In case you didn't see, they have built in Buoyancy to prevent them sinking but holes too to let water drain out to stop them from filling, the spikes are to prevent Fish eating them, I am agnostic but it makes you think!

I know what you mean. God or not, evolution is an extraordinary process. As far as I'm concerned anyone who point blank refuses to believe in it suffers from a massive failure of imagination
