My main concern is keeping the temp below 90 during the So Cal heat waves where it could reach up to 110-115.

If all goes well, they're all coming out in the fall.

I also have aphids in my emersed setups and I have no doubt that they will get into the greenhouse. Any thoughts on how to keep them under control? pitcher plants? lady bugs?
Ladybugs absolutely destroy aphids. You could also try garlic spray.
