Hi AfricanAquarist, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

I agree with what willow advised. As for the time, I have never really monitored, but a few weeks if it is not continually coming off.

Some aquarists can manage to grow Java Fern with the roots in the gravel, but I would not advise it; all plant authors I have read mention that if buried the rhizome (the large fleshy "root" from which the leaves arise) will usually rot, so this should be above the substrate. Attaching it to a rock or wood is ideal, and it will sometimes send the finer hair roots into the substrate, but remain attached (firmly in time) to the rock or wood.
