So I had plants in shipping for 8 days. Most of them are ludwigia white, ludwigia pantanal, ludwigia cuba, ludwigia inclinata red, staurogyne sp purple, rotala mexicana goais. All had melted stems but the stems are strong and havent wilted/melted. Is there anything I can do to revive them or make sure they survive? I have high light and co2 is on high.

I can't think of anything that I would do other than just wait and watch. The biggest problem may have been the lack of water and then moving plants is always going to cause some damage. The roots suffer if nothing else. But on the hopeful side, plants are pretty tough. I just posted a picture of some damage I did to a small red tiger lotus and how it is reacting. I let it dry way too much and it is dead at the top but putting out a new leaf from below.
Faith in nature combined with a bit of luck may be enough to pull you through?

I'm coming back from a meltdown where I was left with only stems/twigs. No leaves at all. It took a few weeks but eventually most twigs started sending out new growth. Some twigs took over a month, but it started. If you are looking for a challenge try to revive them but if you are starting a tank; filling it with twigs is probably not a good idea.
