plants to wood

This seems the most economical way to go, and it lets you decide what plants you want to use....They mention a few plants, like Java Fern and Anbiuas.
Has anyone had luck with this or do you have any tips that make the attaching successful?
I used a rubberband around the Java Fern I had attached to pice of driftwood. Within 2 weeks I was able to remove the rubberband and the plant remained in place. Good luck. It's a pretty simple thing to do. You can also stick the roots into a whole in the wood, that should work.
