That's exactly what I was thinking of doing. That's why I also asked if you put straight tap water in. I like your idea of adding just water, putting Prime in, then the substrate and adding more water. I could do that part with the hose if there's extra Prime in the water. Then just a few trips with hot water and a whole lot less trips up and down the steps. I like it. Thanks!

I'm assuming it will be Saturday because I think my mail is already here and there are no plants. Unless she comes shortly with the box, idk. I'm trying not to obsess on it. If I get anxious it's all over.

Well gang, turn your ear to this.
The plants have arrived. I should have looked at the tracking earlier but I forgot.
They were delivered. But where? I have one of those neighborhood mail boxes where everyone has a box in a central located "big" box. I didn't think the parcel boxes were big enough to hold the plant box. I wouldn't think so anyhow. So I go out there because they aren't at my door, and voila... a key to a parcel box. I open parcel box, no plant box. It's after hours but when I first moved here I got the local number to my post office. Thank God for small towns.
Anyhow, they answer. I explain the situation and it turn out she left the wrong key. They are in parcel box one. She left #2 key.

My plants are 300 feet away from me around the corner and I can't get them for awhile. They are going to come down and let me in once this lady at the P.O. takes an important call. I won't say what I feel like telling her. Tie this to the Valentines topic in "off topic" discussion thread and we have the making of a man gone postal. I'm kidding. But I ain't happy.

Needless to say I won't be ordering mail order anything for awhile. And note, this is not Sweet Aquatics fault. This is a result of poor service from, yet again, another governmental agency. And they want control of healthcare. LMAO...

So it's Friday night. Are you saying someone is coming out TONIGHT to give you key # 1??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

That's what she said. She better too. I'm saying prayers now so if they don't I don't completely flip. Lord, help me to deal. Calm me Lord.
This is enough to make baby Jesus cry. I'm tellin' ya

ohhhh mmmuuuhhhh....was this not our forum and would I not have the deep intention to not get kicked off of here for political incorrectness in 2 sec or less - I'd say something now....but you know along which lines that'd go so I better be quiet.....
But just be glad you're not like us where you get meds delivered (with confirmation) that are meant for a Soldier wayyy on the other side of town...and its meds with a high street value let's just put it that way and the SAME mail man hadn't done this not once, not twice, but 3 times!!!! Needless to say 3rd time my happy butt was at the postmaster's office with the narcotics in my hands that weren't mine.....

You just need me over there....we'd have the plants out that lock box in few seconds screw the wrong key

They're lucky I'm not still in the fire dept. I'd have the Hurst tool (jaws of life) opening that whole section of boxes. Wait, I have guns. And guns can shoot locks off. Hmmmm
