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.

i just bought this plant and placed in a tank with sand and so far the leaves are falling off like crazy 0_o. its only been the 3rd day though. so i think this is normal i hope 0_o lol. i just planted the baby tears straight into the sand.

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.
