Emersed setup water level?


Hey all, I started an emersed setup today with some new Amazonia. I dumped in some Amazonia in a short square vase to about over an inch of soil and misted the soil to the point were it's damp all the way through. I planted 2 newly aquired anubias and a stem of hygro and placed saran wrap over the top with wholes.

My question is does the water level have to be same height as the soil to touch the rhizome?

Can I get away with misting the amazonia everyday?

- Thanks JP

Keep the water level about 1 cm below the soil and you should be fine.
