How to grow HC emersed?

Just wondering how you all grow your HC emersed. I have some growing but it seems to be slow and not so full. Just curious on the different methods.

Mine is growing in ADA AS. There's a plastic covering on it to keep it moist. It's wiped off every so often so the condensation doesn't block the light. Grown with T5 lighting. I spray it with a mix of some EI ferts + macros once or twice a week if I remember.

I wonder if growing it in a hydroponic way would work in the tank? Like on
a floating piece of foam.

when you cover it, do you completely cover it 100% or leave a bit for some air to come in? Do you have any water in the soil at all times? How long does it take for you to grow it thick?
