50 gallon dwarf baby tears

Hello,
Tomorrow my dwarf baby tears are coming in. Im almost done setting up the tank how I want minus one piece of wood which I’m boiling now. Im going to try to do the dry start method. I have my current tank set up in the pic below. I’m removing the radon rock in the middle and replacing the large one on the side with some driftwood. I also have another 15 pounds of Flourite Black Sand coming in. I’m going to try to leave a hole which that sand will fill when it comes in later. Every where seems sold out of it. Any tips or suggestions? Well it says I’m exceeding my quota so I can’t post the pic

The tears just came in. I’m starting to plant them now. Unfortunately it seems impossible to figure out where the roots are lol

Is after two weeks. The plants are starting to spread and haven’t had any major problems. If someone can help me with why the yellowing is happening in some leaves that would be awesome

Do the plants have food?

I put some root tabs in. I have also done some pps pro fertilizers but I get nervous about doing that. I just use a syringe and put a little bit next to each “bush” but am afraid to burn them with too much fertilizer. I have looked everywhere and all the information seems to be different about adding fertilizers to the plants.

Mix a little in water that you use to spray them every day.

I followed the directions from my fertilizers The best I could with an old 1 gallon milk jug. My humidity is at 100 percent and I haven’t seen any mold or fungus. I’m willing to wait however long to get a nice carpet. Just want it to be done faster lol. I’m also worried it’s all going to go to crap once I flush it. I just squirted a bit of fertilized water next to each plant

This is my week 4 update. The grow seems to be going pretty well but slow lol. Had some small flies or gnats flying around so I vacuumed them out today. Besides that don’t see any major problems

Added more plants to the DSM. Rotala wallichii along the back middle. Echinodorus Ozelot red in the middle. Alternanthera Reineckii Rosanervig front middle. Alternanthera Reineckii “mini” I’m the front right corner. Might have to re-arrange these plants depending if they grow too big. Didn’t know the tissue cultures would be multiple plants. Thought both the Alternanthera Reineckii Rosanervig and the Echinodorus Ozelot would just be a single plant.

So after adding these plants my humidity inside the tank will go down. Before it stayed at 99 percent on my hygrometer whether or not I sprayed. This morning it was at 95% and I sprayed. Went back up to 99. Then after some time back down to 96. Sprayed and it’s back up again. Am I going to get in trouble with my plants if I keep spraying? Anything to worry about?
