It gets as high as 90s, but it doesn't typically doesn't last too long. That's why I put the container in a wine barrel surrounded by dirt to help insulate it. I also have some floaters to help block the sun. Unfortunately I have to keep the raccoons out, so it isn't too attractive all the time.
Here's a look inside:
I've thrown a little of everything in there. Some tropical, some collected locally.
- Potamogeton nodosus
- Polygonum hydropiperoides
- Pontederia cordata
- Ludwigia palustrus
- Ludwigia repens x l. arcuata
- Ludwigia sp 'Red'
- Hydrocotyle sp. japan
- Hygrophila polysperma var 'Sunset'
- Pistia stratiotes
I'm looking forward to everything filling out. Our trip to FL is in early August. I plan on doing some collecting while I'm there, so I'm hoping to plant some more in here.
