Floating plants & reverse respiration

Recommended Posts

As we are approaching pond season, pond stores near me are getting pond plants in, and I’ve been thinking about getting some water lettuce for my tanks.   However, I’m not sure how to go about reverse respiration on them, being floating plants with large leaves sticking out of the water.

My initial thought is that you could submerge the leaves in the seltzer water  with the roots, seeing that many plants in the hobby are grown emersed with leaves out of the water. However, a part of me thinks the waterproof leaves might throw a wrench into this. Does anyone here have experience with  reverse respiration on floating plants?
