You could put it in for decoration but it will die if left permanently in the water. Since spider plants produce insane numbers of babies you could simply remove the plant when it starts to shown signs of being under water too long and replace it with another. True aquatic plants would be much better though.

These are not aquatic plants, so like several other plants that are terrerium plants that are sold at pet stores, they will die before too long. As they decay, they will add pollution to the tank. So if you chose to do this, be very careful about your water quality.

Also the spider plants are highly toxic to pets so I would imagine they would be to fish

I tried this yrs ago and it lasted a month or two but didn't grow much at all and like others here say it dies in the end. To bad though because it is a fast growing great looking house,garden plant.
I wish aquatic plants would grow like spider plants. Lol mine don't.
