Nice! I'm curious to what they all are as well - especially the second from the left.

Since the plant orginates from the Amazon, it should be able to withstand temps into the mid 80's with no problems. My local pond/aquarium plant greenhouse grows them in their greenhouses and actually suggested them instead of my normal water lettuce for my aquarium. They do prefer no or very low surface agitation because they are somewhat delicate. Lighting is mid to high and will produce a flower with higher intensity light I was told.
