Post How do you plant most stem plants

My question is how do you plant stem plants?
can leave some of them floating?
or do they have to planted in the substrate or weighed down?

Sorry for the bad post but i need some advice on the subject Thanks

You can bury a little bit of the stem plants in the gravel and make sure it's covered well, the gravel will act as a weight itself....

some stem plants can be floating plants, such as pennywort, but becareful, some fish don't appreciate floating plants....and some fish will make bubble nests in them..
