Fluval spec planning? (planting HC from an emerged setup?)

So I have A lot of HC growing emersed, and tomorrow I will be getting the Fluval spec. So, two questions: is the spec's stock light capable of growing HC? I will dose excel daily, and if necessary, pressurized co2. And 2: how do I transplant HC from my emersed setup to the tank for a dry start? I've only planted HC from a pot... And how long should I have the dsm going? I will have enough to fill the bottom, but how long shall I let it go for proper roots to develop? Thanks.

You never know til you try. I'd grow it submerged as soon as possible. Plant it DEEP. Lot of Excel or CO2 will help. It'll take at least a month closer to two to really establish....maybe supplement the stock light with a CF bulb during the grow out stage.
