Arrow DutchMuch's Emersed Setup, Big Ol' Greenhouse Edition!!

Well I don't think I have ever posted my emersed setup on here.
And if I'm going to be an active member, I basically need to give you all an entire tour of my property I live on right?
well to bad your not going to get it. *loads shotgun*

Instead however ill give you a tour of my Greenhouse, of which consists of my Absolutely Stunning and Beautiful, Never Ugly, Astonishing, Amazing, Great looking, Phenomenal, Astronomical, Economical, Emersed setup.
Sorry for the bragging. Cant help it.

lol.

Ok here are the pics, I will label certain plants as I go.

Get your popcorn ready!

p.s. my good camera broke just recently, so this is a less-better camera (English...)




Above pic, is of Rotala Indica 'true', just planted it the other day. Tried to grow stellata type 2 emersed as well in this bin, but I'm pretty sure it can only be grown submersed...


This is a new trimming of S. Repens in the same bin.


This is Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides


Next bin!


Well darn... brain farting right now... OH, hygrophilia corymbosa compacta.


Rotala 'Gia Lai'


I want to say.. this is Crypt. Lucens...


Next Bin.


Bocopa Carolinana growing in a flooded forest fringe of Bacopa Monierii


Ludwigia Arcuata carpet


One of my three pearlweed carpets


Bin of Althernanthera reneckii (fablau is properly ID-ing the variety for me)


Bin consisting of:
Brazilian pennywort
marsilea hirsuta
Ludwigia rubin
Hydro. Sib.
And some fragments of Pearlweed.


My Marsh looking bin of Marsilea Hirsuta and Ludwigia Repens


New Ludwigia arcuata and Bacopa Carolianana experiment I'm doing, full sun.

Its a personal mix, wink wink, of MGOPS (not saying ratios), peat moss, vigro garden soil, MGMCO, and sand if needed.

Well its winter, getting down in the 20's and 30's. Bit of the 50's and 60's now and then.
So when it gets cold, there is No additional heat in the greenhouse. And by that I mean a heater, black bucket with insulation in it, nothing. So when its 30's outside, its 30's inside the greenhouse.
So how do all the plants not die? well its simple, make a greenhouse, inside the greenhouse...!

Sounds easy right? yea but it isn't free. For me it was but for others it most likely wont be.
You can see in the pics what I'm talking about but what I do to make a greenhouse tub inside the greenhouse, is put glass over all my tubs Seal it Tight but leave 1 gap for air to get out and Co2 to get in. Optional to put the tubs top over the glass but I did anyway.
So here are the pics of all the plants in approximately 44 degree weather, and plz note it has been cold for a long couple months now. None of the plants have Major die off. They simply don't grow and go dormant, that is the ones outside without covers, the ones with covers do as they would in summer, grow 24/7!












Thinking about using seed starter blocks for some hydrocotyle japan or maybe crypts, maybe rotala... not sure yet.
Sorry for the bad pics on the seed starter blocks, weird focus thing happened I wasn't aware of.

Wow, I'm so jealous! Looks good! Can't set up something like this in the Netherlands because the winters are way too cold and living space is much smaller here so inside isn't an option either.
