Anubias in a jar?

Hey yall recently I got an anubias which unforuntly had to cut all of the leaves off due to damage and algae. I was thinking and had the idea of trying to grow it emergent in a jar on top of my aquarium next to the light. Thoughts on if this would work and how to do it?

Put some soil in the bottom, wet it so it is moist not sopping wet and plant only the anubias roots (not the rhizome). It should do just fine under a light.

Thanks Zapins! Should I mist it every-now and then?
