floating the plants,before planting.

hey guys..
I had a delivery of my red and green Cabomba today,and i was
on my way out to a funeral...so rather than leave them in the bag,i took
them out and popped them into the water,where they have floated all day..
this won't have caused any further damage would it ?
i'm not going to get a chance of planting until tomorrow morning,i've just
not long got home,and i'm shattered.
thanks.
forgot to mention they have no weights on them,do i need any ?

Floating them for a day is much better then leaving them in the bag where they could dry out even more. The stems will have no problem with this. In fact I have a few damaged stems now floating in one of my tanks to help it recorp better since its closer to the light.

Weights are not needed.
