As for the plants, now that i have your .02$ on that, i think my plan for them as far as now is to:



1- Drop the tank water to under 1" or 1" exactly.

2- Put plastic wrap on the tanks top to keep in humidity

3- mist well every hour



does this plan sound... full proof? surely 1" of water couldn't undo the soil cap.

one thing im sure of is tearing the tank down, IE taking plants out, etc.


The water will slosh from side to side front to back and the substrate will be rearranged for you with a possibility of plants coming out or being uprooted
The least amount of water the better
