Trying emmersed grow out

I have wanted to try my hand at farming some of my plants. I purchased a clear plastic tub with lid. I also purchased 4 smaller tubs to sit inside the larger tub. Filled smaller tubs with miracle grow potting soil added water and walaa!
I am using a 30in 2 bulb HO fixture for my lighting source. Covered the top with plastic wrap to keep moisture in.

Here's what I have to far

Plant list (I think this is accurate)

Proper Name: Hygrophila polysperma
Proper Name: Ludwigia repens
Proper Name: Pogostemon stellatus
Proper Name: Rotala rotundifolia
Proper Name: Sagittaria subulata
Proper Name: Rotala Sp. Green
Proper Name: Stauro Repens
Proper Name: Bacopa caroliniana

Unknown ROTALA at the top, unknown plant in the middle(pretty sure I got it in trade from HERNS back in '11, dwarf sag at bottom

ROTALA sp. green at the top, Stauro Repens and Pogostemon stellatus in the middle and unknown plant at the bottom

Hygrophila polysperma at the left and Ludwigia repens at the right

Bacopa caroliana

Can anyone identify the unknowns? Have I misidentified any of the others?

It will interesting to see how this turns out.......thanks for looking!
