This weekend for some reason I got a wild hare (or perhaps it was a wild hair) and I bought some water plants. I went crazy!--one water lettuce, one water hyacinth and little snippet of a mosaic plant.

Oh and there is some fairy moss in the CP bogs.
Will the fact that its tap water hurt them? And do they need a substrate to live (the temporary tub is just a tub of water)? And will they survive cold temps (freezing and below)? I was doing some research last nite but not finding the info I wanted.
I dont really have the space for a real pond but I have seen some really nice mini ponds (like barrels and large pots). I'd like to add a mini water lily or something if I can find a container and a sunny spot. (Like I need MORE plants...*sigh*)
