Plants arrived!


Recommended Posts

Can't get my planting done this moment because I have to get some sleep before work. Twelve hour shifts are hard on an old fat man. Will these be OK if I don't plant them until tomorrow morning? How about for a few days? 

Here's my parameters a few hours ago;

05-20 0930
Ammonia .10 ppm
Nitrite 2.0 ppm
Nitrate 80 ppm
pH 6.4

I'm assuming your just cycling your tanks based on the water parameters.

But, yes the plants will be fine. They've been in those very pots since they were at the farms, a few more days wont hurt. Is that a sword I see in the back? If your going to be keeping these plants in the pots for a while longer you may want to consider inserting a root tab in the rock wool.

Awesome, thank you,  Cory!
