So I recently aquired some stem plants form aquabid.com. The plant is L. Aromatica (red). Which is quite lovely. Well it took 6 days upon reaching my door steps . The condition of the plant was pretty fair, and I was afraid it would have been all melted, but not really. So on to the question. How long should I float this plant, before I stick it in the substrate? Some of the tops are melted off, so I only have the middle portion alive, and how long before I see side shoots? Is the plant going to die without the top portion? Thanks.
