Only bury the root part way into the gravel. Java ferns do best when tied gently to a piece of driftwood until the root themselves onto it.

There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore....
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past.
There is a reason they didn't make it to your future.
