How long before ferts?

So Hi all,

I will finally fill my dry started tank tonight. It is filled with HC and DHG.

The thing is I havenít received my EI ferts yet (probably in by this Friday). Will the plants survive the couple of days without ferts?

Thanks!

Plants go through changes when you submerge them. I have never done that but I
would think they would be better off if you just wait till you get the ferts.
But check that with those who have done it already.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I am using ADA Aquasoil. I know a lot of nutrients are present in that substrate...?
