Leaves dying

Both of my crpyts died while sitting in my transfer tank, and all my other plants have dying leaves.

They are getting planted today, but my t5ho setup wont arrive til the day after I leave town, so I will be using some CFL's - approx 1watt per gallon (desk lamp) and some natural indirect sunlight (no co2 during this time) while I am gone.

Will the plants that lost all leaves still regrow or should I toss them?

Crypts usually lose their leaves when they are transplanted, but as long as the roots look good, they regrow them. For the other plants, it depends on what they are, but most will recover if you trim off the dead parts.
