Illinois pondweed is similar to American pondweed, and can be easily confused. Leaves are oval in shape and float on the surface of the water, and are attached to a long stem.

NON NATIVE INVASIVE – Parrotfeather milfoil has stiff, bright green leaves that rise above the water like a forest of tiny fir trees. Leaves have a feather-like shape and are arranged in whorls around the stiff stem. Often creates dense mats on the surface of shallow water or on wet soil.

Unfortunately, this exotic plant is established in most states. It grows densely forming surface mats that prohibit recreation and displace desirable native plants communities.

I’m going to assume the roots won’t receive enough oxygen and I’m also going to assume the plant won’t have any way to transpire water/exchange gases as the stomata are meant to be be dry in terrestrial plants.

I wonder if there’s potential for it surviving if you bubbled a good amount of air across the plant and provided adequate lighting. My guess is that water surface tension would mostly prevent the plant from absorbing any CO2, but
