Adding new UG

I ordered some more UG from plantedtank.net S&S forum.  This time I got a 4 x 4 mat from someone that grew them emersed.  The 4 x 4 mat looks really cool when it arrived.  I really wanted to plant the whole mat into the tank as is but decided to cut it up.  Since the mat came with the roots wrapped around lots of Aquasoil, I decided to go with bigger patches and just plant the UG with the AS directly into my tank.  I’m hoping this will give the UG the best chance to adjust to the new environment.  People say that the UG don’t transition well going from emersed to submersed.  I don’t really have a choice here so I’m hoping for the best!  Side note, I started using 50% RO water and 50% tap water for the water changes.  I also add Prime and GH booster to the water.  Every morning I dose two pumps of the Brighty K.  (PH 6.5 ; Nitrite .3, Ammonia 0, GH 5, KH 3)
