 For  an  emmersed  growth,  you  need  to  provide  a  high  humidity  environment.  like  cover  up  the  top  of  the  tank  with  transparent  material  like  polythene  cover  or  glass.  maintain  an  8  hours  duration  of  light.

 @  KarthickJk
 
 Do  start  a  new  thread  if  you  have  any  doubts  on  the  emersed  growth.  Please  don't  hijack  this  thread.  
 
 There  are  many  post's  in  IAH  on  emersed  growth  of  plants.

 Please  dont  reply  to  this  post.  Start  a  new  post  if  you  have  any  queries  on  this.
 
 
 @  Manish,
 
 Is  it  just  soil  or  have  you  used  any  other  substrates  along  with  the  soil  to  mineralize  the  soil  ?  
 
 The  stone  placed  at  the  left  is  too  big  and  does  not  match  the  scape.  Do  try  keeping  a  small  stone.

 If  That's  what  you  are  using,  then  you  are  in  trouble  if  you  don't  cover  that  up  with  sand  or  gravel.
 All  your  fruitful  result  will  vanish  once  you  fill  the  tank..
