Can I grow aquarium plants outside of water,...

Or does it have to be inside of water, if you plan on using it in a fish tank in the future?

I have a single Betta. I purchased a java fern as well as another type of plant and the second one polluted the tank because it wasn't meant to stay underwater. I read up on it and found that pet stores will sell these anyway.

Another thing. Beware of heaters you buy at the pet store. Try them out in a separate container BEFORE you stick them in the tank with your precious fish. I'm glad I did this because two of the ones I purchased went well over 100ú. I had to take them back. I use a digital thermometer to check the temps with.

Here are some links that might be useful.

Submerged and submersed. In nature aquarium plants grow mostly in submersed then submerged conditions. Bog conditions.
