I'm not Gary (but I did stay in a Holiday Inn {a commercial we have in the states}), but should be looking for an organic soil that doesn't have any dangerous/toxic additives/fertilizers.

You can also grow in straight Peat. Whatever you decide to use, ensure it's natural as possible, the stuff from your yard should not be used.

I am doing some rework on Phoenix and I plan to start of initially "emersed" to get the lawn of Hairgrass that I want. I will document the progress as per usual.

I know this. Thread has been dead but I want to do this because I don't get alot of money due to I am just under age to work. So I need to grow my plants this way.

How do "plant" Java ferns in this style?

When do you water the plants and how often?

Can you use a 10 gallon tank as a substitute for tubaware?

I can't use soil with fertilizers? Why?

Crypts,sword,and Java ferns is what I plan to use

Java Fern are spray zone plants, yes, you can achieve it, but this requires no substrate. Attach the small pieces of Rhizome to pieces of wood and keep wet all the time. Best with some sort of water in the tank and keep it spraying around.
