How to properly plant Baby Tears?

Could anyone help me with an idea how to properly plant Baby Tears? I have fairly 'large' gravel compared to this fragile plant (gravel ~2-4mm) and I don't want to burry it under the gravel but I also can't get it to nicely stay on the ground neither?

get a piece of mesh and tie it to the mesh then place that on the bottom of the tank.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Yea sand is easier, gravel with the dwarf baby tears...whole nother story lol
Except for the moment I planted mine didn't have permanent leaves coming of!? What kinda light are you running on the tank, how big is the tank? They may not be getting the proper nutrition's and lights needed.
