House Plants that Will Grow in Water

I would like to have a vase on my desk with a plant in water. Which plants will grow this way?

Pothos will do well in water with good filtered light. Google the image, it's a common plant.

Any of the philodendrons will root and grow in water, ivies will as well.

For some foliage colour (if you get a fair amount of sun at that spot) you can try some of the spiderworts, like 'wandering Jew' or 'Moses in the bulrushes'-use the word Tradescantia in your search engine to find images. These do have some flowering but I've never seen them flower whilst in water as the only growing medium.

Be advised most plants like these will develop brittle roots and eventually die; even water lilies want some soil to thrive and flower.

Bamboo does well this way also. In Dallas where I live, attractively-potted bamboo plants with rocks and water are very easy to find at Home Depot, Lowe's, and even grocery stores.
