Lower water level so it just covers the base of the plant and roots. Cover the container with clear plastic to keep humidity up and thts it. Look up dry starting a planted tank.

 @ jetajocku -Even that is almost not worth it to grow them emersed.  You might even kill your plants trying.It takes time to adapt plants sumbmeresed to emersed. There are some spieces that will convert qucker.I would just order a bunch of baby aquatic plants.( I.E the ones you want to grow)

 They come in bundles. Plant them in either your grow containers or how ever your doing your system. you will MAD amounts of plants. 

I started my aquatic plant farm using tropicas 1 -2 grow emersed plants!!!

i will be doing some video ect eventually!! lol starting my own channel and shit so I will be getting all that shit posted up! 

Ive been working away from home for a while so i gotta get shit rolling again, get some tanks up, submerge a bunch of plants and do some videos on doing that as well and emeresed growth and all that other fun jazz!

I will also be dirting some tanks as well as substrate but ill be working on the plant farm first and then to the tanks i dont wanna rush the shit and put out crappy videos that are half asked ect.
