Any hints for growing emersed?

I tried it using DSM in two batches. The first was misted with water from my EI tank (7.8 pH, 8 GH) and soon went to a dark brown. The second batch did better after I cut the tank water with distilled at a 1:1 ratio.

This suggests the plant does better under softer parameters but other factors can't be ruled out for the first batch apparently dying off.

29g high tech, 10g low tech halfmoon, and please see my 5g crescent journal.
