  For me I have a hard time finding an effective method to cool the
water into the 50s when the outside temps are in the 80s. Especially a
cost effective method.
  In nature the plants are found bathing in very cool(50s) spring water.
Under those conditions the plants thrive and grow prolifically.

>Please note that this is only an IDEA ,I've NOT tried it out

I feel it could work well, but again, how could you cool the water so
