They grow with their roots in the water, but most of the plant is above the surface. Spanish moss is an epiphyte that grows on trees. Orchids are both epiphytes and terrestrials, with different species growing in each habitat. Peppergrass - this can mean a number of different plants, just like the cypress. If in the genus polygonum, there are plants that are terrestrial and emergent. There's also a ... more
