hydrocotyle question

Do these species do well in colder water (lower sixties)? I really don't want to run a heater on this tank I have set up for 'japan' but still would like it to carpet.

Probably do fine I have a bucket of it in an greenhouse that goes down to 40. f at night and seems fine. It just may not grow very fast at the colder temps? Maybe that's a good thing FME!
