Question How do you grow emersed plants?

Ok, so how do I grow emersed plants? What do I need, how does it work, how long does it take for them to switch from submersed to emersed? What things do I need to worry about, how long until they are a good size, how long for them to adjust back to submersed life? Anything I have to worry about?

These are not easy questions to answer. Figure out What plants do you want to grow emersed then reaserch the plants. There are different methods for emersed growth. If I was you I would start with an empty 10 or 20 gallon tank buy some cheap plastic pots and figure out what substrate you need. Then put an inch or two of water in the bottom cover the tank and set the lighting for 10 to 12 hours a day. Then just experiment with different plants. Its gonna take time so be patient.
