As you surmised, Salvinia like most plants needs a period to adjust to a new environment.
On the pH, I have no direct knowledge of how much this affects most plants. The ranges in the profiles here are the consensus of botanists and acknowledged planted tank sources, not something I dreamed up, so I provide what the experts say is optimal. But some plants may do well beyond those ranges. All one can do is try and see.
There are some plants that are quite finicky. I will usually state this in the parameter section if someone like Kasselmann has noted it.
Byron, my GH is around 16 if I remember rightly, so pretty hard. And I have dosed with 2.5 ml of flourish comprehensive 2 times this week, only just started using flourish this week, I also removed my carbon filter pad this week too! So hopefully things will start to improve soon. Got some black beard going on on my java fern and Anubis though, so think I might be leaving lights on too long. Around 12 hours give or take.
