Default DSM for Eleocharis Belem.

I want to grow a lush lawn of Eleocharis Belem (DHG).

I’m trying to decide what will be the best approach, the Dry Start Method (DSM) or submerged growing.

I’m thinking of DSM;
-Will the hairgrass melt when it goes emerged to submerge, does the plant adjust well?
-Does DSM give faster growth than a high tech submerged environment?
-How tall does Eleocharis Belem grow?

This is the setup, it’s very simple hardscape, I just want to see whether I can successful get a carpet first.
-20G, Co2 kit, high lighting @ x3 24w, internal and canister filter, ADA substrate.
I have success with hardier and stem plants. Haven't tried any foregrounds yet.




Any input or experience with DSM and DHG will be great.
