So heres where im at after about 10 days.
I also would mist them with tank water from my other tank, which i hope provides some acclimation and nutrients as it does for my house plants

I would place a saucer in the tank and slowly add water.
Hopefully it will stay low and compact after flooding.

Conditioned tap water/ RO water/ other tank water?

Most folks simply flood the tank. But I understand your concern. Will it melt during the transition? Probably not. These are hardy plants. You could do conditioned tap water. I see nothing wrong with tank water other than the added nitrates. Then again, you might introduce algae doing that.
After flooding I would go ahead and start your fertilizer and carbon routine.

So i watched a couple videos where if they arent submerged soon (5-7 days) after starting that they have a tendency to grow more vertically.

Mine had just yesterday shown signs of this so i submerged them today to about an inch above plant height.
I used water treated with a dab of liquid fertilizer and excel.

Anymore updates on the gloss? Is the tank fully submerged now?
