yes a regular garden soil mixed a bit with crushed root tabs. i made a mud back then but got lazy adding water everyday and the soil hardened. it's fine though as those HC has already rooted.

oh and it grow with about 70% sunlight.

i think you can do it faster than mine with those enriched substrate. the sooner that the roots have access to nutrient the better.

You could also use potting soil, but just enrich it yourself with NPK+T. All the dry ferts we use for aquariums are intended to enrich potting soil, so it should be a breeze. Just be careful, because you can burn a plant with ferts.

if you grow it emmersed and then put it underwater, do the emmersed growing leaves die?

Is emergeed Anubias different from submerge? How come you can plant the rhizomes under the substrate when its emerged and not when its submerged
