I'm growing Monte Carlo emersed right now, but not in-tank like a dry start method (which is what you might be looking for). It's growing in a plastic container, in a mix of potting soil, sand, and Eco-Complete. I have it under a humidity dome but you can use plastic wrap. If the plants are covered you don't need to mist them more than once a day. Also make sure the soil isn't soaking wet, standing water could bring algae or mold.
