Converting Echinodorus to emersed growth

Do they need to slowly acclimatise to lower humidity or are they fine straight out of the water and into room levels? Around 50%.

Have made a big change in my riparium as some plants were just getting way too big.

Got a tank? Doing it filterless? Add it here!

I've never had good luck converting them. But I decided now to put one of my little indian red plantlets in a container and see how it does. Will report back later!

I've put them in soil and high humidity for now. Usually I wait until the leaves start to transform then I'll gradually lower the humidity, works for my stem plants.

I know they can survive in low humidity it's just a matter of getting them used to it.
