 I  am  planning  on  a  nano  aquascape  tank,  probably  a  3G.
 I  have  been  research  in  all  over  the  internet  and  I'd  like  a  Monte  Carlo  carpet.
 During  my  research  I  came  across  the  dry  start  method  and  people  had  mix  reviews  about  it.
 I'll  be  highly  obliged  if  all  you  knowledgeable  people  here  could  throw  some  light  on  the  topic.
 
 
 
 
 Thank  you
 Rohit

 Hi  Rohith,
 Dry  start  method  is  best  solution  to  avoid  algae  and  gain  quick  growth  of  plants.
 And  Monticarlo  can  be  grown  by  dry  start  method.  You  need  to  the  scape  the  tank  with  hardware  and  wet  the  substrate  just  enough  to  start  planting.  After  planting  add  enough  water  to  submerge  only  the  substrate.  Cover  the  tank  with  transparent  cover  like  plastic  or  glass  to  get  high  humidity  in  the  tank.  provide  adequate  lighting  for  around  8  hrs..  time  to  time  you  need  to  spray  or  sprinkle  water  in  the  tank.
 The  plants  will  start  growing,  depending  upon  the  density  of  planting  your  carpet  will  be  ready  in  a  month  or  two..
 When  you  are  satisfied  with  the  growth,  you  can  fill  up  the  tank  with  water  and  start  dosing  high  CO2  (any  method).  some  times  the  plants  may  wilt  due  to  the  transition  from  emersed  to  submersed,  this  is  normal.  you  will  start  seeing  new  submersed  growth  with  in  a  couple  of  days..

 Rohith,  
 
 DSM  is  a  good  method  to  start  but  during  the  transition  phase  you  have  to  be  very  careful  to  increase  CO2  and  reduce  photo  period  and  ensure  regular  water  changes  to  avoid  fertilizer  from  the  soil  leaching  in  to  the  water  as  this  in  turn  will  cause  algae  problems.
 
 All  the  best  keep  us  posted.
