Emersed Growth Setup

Hello, I am trying to start a simple emersed growth setup using pots. I was wondering if a self watering pot would work for an emersed growth setup? Using a setup like the picture except with a higher water level? I also would like to do the pots with no cover and am looking for plants that would do well with low humidity. I plan on using domes at first to acclimate the plants. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know!

What you have will work. A dome is a must. Long term usage of the dome will depend on the transition. Itís a good idea to have a spray bottle on hand to apply a mist to the plants, even under the dome. Once you get decent growth, then you can remove the dome for short periods of time (10-15 minutes) and gradually work up the durations. This may take weeks or months to complete.
Most stem plants and crypts should be fine for this transition. I have done this with dwarf baby tears and Alternanthera reineckii.
