Plants melting on a newbie
So I've had my first tank planted for about a week now, and I've noticed that some of my plants are melting. It seems like every time I look a new leaf of my Val or wisteria is floating around, the Vals look particularly see through. Yesterday I came back and three of my wisteria stems that I planted were floating around, so I could see that none of them had even begun sprouting roots. The bottom of the stem looking bruised and weak, and the stem of the whole plant was very fragile and broke with the slightest touch. I replanted some and trimmed off the melting leaves, not sure if this will help or not. I did get these plants sent to me and they went to the wrong address so they were sitting outside in 30 degree weather for about 5 hours, so maybe they aren't recovering from that. I also bought two anubis and one of the plants has some really big brown spots on them, and the rhizomes from both are turning kind of brown. The only thing that seems to be growing is a crypt, a sword and an Anubis from petco. I'm doing a fishless cycle so I'm worried that the plants aren't getting any nutrients from the water besides ammonia. I do have root tabs though...any thoughts or suggestions?
