quick question- coldwater ripariums

Hi everyone,

I'm experimenting with low-tech ripariums for the first time. One of the tanks will be a room temp tank of 62-65 degrees. If it's a warm day, it can get to 78 for a little while. Lighting is filtered light from nearby window.

It never occurred to me that temperature could affect these plants.

Right now I'm only going to do floating rafts, no planters. Plants are common and cheap that I already have around the house- peace lillies, philodendron, pothos, some Dracena, and dumb cane.

Will the cold water decrease my success with these plants?
