Best and most efficient way to dry start???

So I'm lucky enough to be starting my tank from scratch. Its gonna be empty with fish chilling in a holding tank while I scape it.

I tried MC previously but because I put fish in the tank and filled it up a week after planting the MC, it never rooted down enough before getting blasted out of the substrate. So this time I want to do it properly with as much time in the world. But need your guys help doing it :):)

What is the best way to dry start HC or similar carpet plants? And how long should I leave it before filling up with water?
