Why no Anubias? They're lovely things. . .
Leave it to me to ask the tough questions, eh?
It was one of the plants that was at least $12 for a single... maybe $15. Everything that I wanted was to be easy, cheap and reasonably fast growing and I didn't want something that, should it fail, I would regret... trial and error has it's drawbacks even though I am certain now that it would have been fine. Now that I have my tank mostly full, I just would still not choose to add it. There are tons of other choices yet.
I don't think a derailment can be official unless it lasts for 4 or more posts that don't at least make some attempt to address the original query...
So, I would suggest that wood would be the best surface for these, or any non substrate plant, to cling to. Something that was mentioned to me as a method of securing plants if I didn't want to tie them was to use a sharp knife to create slivers of wood still attached to the main piece. The plants could CAREFULLY be slid under these slivers to hold it in place while the clinging occurs. I haven't taken the time to do this with my new driftwood and baby java ferns but that is likely what I will do.
