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

i agree, but its still alive and perky. the water is fairly oxygenated, i’d say just as good as any DWC or recirculating DWC – it is constantly agitated and aerated by a waterfall
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.
