    Hi,

    Just a question on receiving plants in the mail, from the cold. I just received several boxes of plant clippings from various sources, and I'm hoping I've handled them correctly for now. Some mosses, riccia, HC, HM, a couple of taller plants. It's roughly 36 degrees today. I brought them in, unboxed them (but left them in the baggies with moisture,) set them on a table in the basement (where it's around 62 degrees), and covered everything with a towel.

    I hope this is ok for now. The reason I'm asking is I came home for lunch to get them out of the cold, and what I did was all I have time for until I come home from work later.

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    Also, I recieved some dwarf riccia that looks like tiny pieces. I was thinking of floating it in the tank inside some nylon hosery for awhile, to let it grow or whatever. Good idea? I don't know what to do with the tiny peices.

    Nevermind...

    Not as big of a deal as I made it out to be.

    I just toss them, anything even remotely viable right into the tank and pray.

    Funny...I do the same...and especially if they have all sorts of twisted funky irregular shaped growth after the transit. I just recently got some L. aromatica that is all corkscrew shaped!
