The plants all look kind of sad and wilted. The soil appears to be damp though, if not wet. Should i spray/splash the leaves of the plants or just let them get accustomed to not being submersed?

I am not experienced with immerse set ups. But I think their getting accustomed to being immersed.

They take a little while to adjust, keep the soil wet damp whatever and spray them and they should be fine.

spray! The submerse leaves usually die off then the emmmersed leaves take over. this seems to take a lot of energy, so a little water will help the transitionin process~

I just thought of something. The plants would have no weight on them in water. So what looks sad/dropy in an immersed set up may exactly look like a plant adjusting to it's new environment in a submersed set up.
