Keeping tissue culture plants alive

I’m waiting on hardscape and substrate coming for a new nano aquarium but I’ve just taken delivery of some packets of HC Cuba from aqua essentials (super quick delivery, I wasn’t expecting them so soon!)

I might be a week away from being ready to plant them at least , is there anyway I can plant them in a tub of soil and let them grow emersed while I wait to set up everything else?

Hi all,

They should be fine in their tub till you need them. Just put the unopened tub somewhere it gets good light, but not direct sunlight. I usually suggest a N. facing window-sill, but you will need to keep an eye on the sun in the early morning & late evening.
