Marko's Emersed (No-Longer-)Outdoors Setup -- Bucephalandra Flower (8/24/13)

so i decided to start some things off emersed, to see if i could handle it. i have a container of stagnant water and some small pots with miracle grow in it. a few weeks after starting one small setup i now have this:


and now im starting a second larger one (here it is so far):


i will try and get more/better shots tomorrow.

any suggestions on what i should try to grow? or how to get the stuff to grow better?

Marko....need to know what you are growing and the current conditions you have before we can recommend anything! How much sun does it get, what are the temps, and so on!

excellent point(s).
species so far:
mystery plant (one in the top left of the first pic)
p. helferi
h. tiger
l. sessiliflora
e. belem
m. pteporus trident
u. graminifolia
r. fluitans
xmas moss
c. wendtii brown
c. parva
c. spiralis

receiving bright shade, temps are NJ temps (will vary from 75-100 over the course of the summer), i have not ever misted yet, and nothing is drying out, though the crypts were just planted today.
i tried moving the first setup into the sun for a few hours (to slowly acclimate the plants to sun so they could be grown there where they should grow faster), but when i came back they were yellow and dead. the e. belem grew back from the roots though, and the hygro, riccia, and moss grew back from i dont know what. i guess little bits survived and regenerated.

You could use a screen to provide some shading, but I would not leave this out in the sun in 100F weather!! It'll melt everything in there, even if there is water in there....think "soup"!

I would take somewhere a little more temperature controlled, for starters. A clear aquarium would be ideal, in terms of lighting, but what you have it in should be fine. Bright light with warm temps, but nothing too extreme!! Keep it moist. Boom, your done.

thanks.
the r. mexicana is var. goias.
the r. mexicana, r. green, d. diandra, h. glomeratus, g. elatinoides, and p. kawegaeunum are recent additions (just added saturday), but are already showing signs of growth. the glosso and r. mexicana particularly.
i also have m. pteporus "threadleaf" (not needleleaf, threadleaf); id never even heard of it before, but when i saw the pic, i had to have it; and lileopsis mini on the way.
