You can use rocks or just leave it as is and secure the java fern right to the top of the cave. Either way the roots "should" catch on in a few weeks, just secure the rhizome with fishing line, black thread, etc. I read the black thread should dissintegrate over time, but not sure, I bought a piece of driftwood with the anubias already in it and have my java fern in the substrate with the rhizome exposed.

You may want to wait for Byron or someone else with more experience to chime in though. I've only been doing planted for a couple weeks myself.

Warning: It's addicting ;)

Yes very addictive hehe I will order new lights soon add a lot more plants and if needed add a co2 system , I already like the sand a lot better then the blue and green gravel i had before its more natural and I can plant more easily!
