Subject: Help on emersed plants

I'm trying to setup an ultra-cheap emersed "nursery" on my apartment porch.
Can anyone give me some suggestions?  

I only get a few hours of direct sun in the morning and I'm also worried that
when Austin's weather calms down a bit, my plants will bake in the heat.  
I bought a cheap 15gal transparent tub at Target, but the lid is opaque, so 
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to retain the moisture without
blocking the little direct sun I get.  Also, the leaves that are just
submerged are getting burned due to the magnifying effect of a thin layer
of water.

Some general advice and/or setup info from someone who's done this would be
