I did give them an edge. Here is a little 'trick' that might be useful to others in the future: I layer a larger biomass around the more 'important' plants, sort of like a sandwich, with the biomass closest to the outside of the box. (all plants in separate sealed bags). If the outside plants begin to rot in transit, they produce a tiny bit of heat that just might shield the plants that are closer to the middle of the box. If you have ever seen a bale of hay in the winter you should have seen the heat raising up as vapor. At least, that's the idea.
Oh okay. These look okay in the water from a distance. They are the same as the picture I asked for help with, except it's close up and out of the water. They are floating. Tomorrow I will plant them. How tall do these get? So I can decide on location
