    I have anubias, glosso and HC emersed growth. I have to leave for a week. What is the best thing to do?

    I have misting the anubias because they dry out real fast and occaisionally the glosso and HC. I currently do NOT have any water in the aquarium. I was planning on turning the lights off so that the plants stop growing as much and so that they won't dry out. Or should I put some water in?

    Thanks for any help! I'm leaving this Sunday so if I could get some ideas, I don't want months of beautiful emersed growth going down the drain!!!! :)

    Some decent potting soil very well dampened in a germination tray is all I've needed to ignore growth for a week at a time without trouble. An incandescent bulb can be a nice thing for providing sufficient heat, depending on the temperature you're dealing with. Basically I keep it wet and hot enough that the water precipitates off the lid after an hour or two of light, keeping the plants from drying out.
