recieving plant via Mail(emersed)

hi
just a quick ?

I got some plants in the mail today.

the were grown emersed, they look alive, but have travelled for 7 days via postal service.

What's the best way for me to secure survival of the plants?
In my 85 gallon plant tank? or in my emersed setup?

get them in water ASAP. thats about it.
I received not too long ago a 2 day package that wound up taking 9 to get to me. all the plants were pretty bad off. all you can really do is get them in water and provide the good light and conditions to them and hope they spring back.
good luck with your salvage. As long as theres life in the roots theres a chance.

Don't be surprised if you lose a lot of leaves as the plants were grown emersed.
