Yes as Gavtheblade says you could just put them in the pond in the pots make sure you dont put them in the deep water area as they are Marginal plants which like the shallow water. If you do need to repot them at any time make sure you use Aquatic soil not soil from your garden.

Growing lettuce in the greenhouse

Yes you can grow them almost anywhere I've just put some in a seed tray in my unheated greenhouse and will transplant them later into the greenhouse boarders. Some people fill a bit of plastic guttering with soil/compost and when the seeds have grown big enough to handle you can slide the plants out into single large pots or into the greenhouse or even outside, doing it this way the roots dont get disturbed to much as lettuce dont like their roots disturbed it can make them run to seed. But remember to harden the plants off if you start them in the greenhouse before planting them outside.
