You can grow any plant in hydroponically, even succulents, as long as you are providing them with the right nutrients and the correct watering system. If you just want to put it in a container of water it will grow, if you maintain the right amount of oxygen and nutrients.
Oxygen by changing the water often. Weekly at minimum. Or you can provide an oxygenator/bubbler, then you do not need change the water as often.
The container should not be see through, otherwise you will always be cleaning algae off the inside of the container. If you start to get algae growth your water is getting too much light. Figure out a way to block the light.
It is very important to make sure you keep the leaves and stem dry. Putting a layer of stone between the water and the foliage will help.
Also, think about heat. Plants that grow in warm conditions, do not like cold water. Even room temperature water maybe too cold. I keep all my semi-hydroponic plants, which includes many succulent at 25c (78f). This is a good growing temperature. Any warmer and the water can not hold enough oxygen.
