Looking for advice on growing Colocasia in water?

Since the dawn of time I have killed alocasias and colocasias with reckless abandon, because I apparently suck at maintaining them in soil. In a last ditch effort to preserve my most recent victim, I placed my sad scrappy colocasia 'mojito' bulb in a whiskey glass full of water and set it by the window. Lo and behold, she is all about that. I did the same with a few other equally depressed elephant ear bulbs and they all seem to be thriving. However, I have no idea how to keep them happy in water in the long term. Has anyone had any success with long term colocasia care in exclusevly water? Should I put some aquarium pebbles in there to give it something to anchor to? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
