UsIng superglue to adhere plants to rock?

I found caboma in my java moss I got, and I've seperated it and am trying to grow it up and down. It ha other ideas, and just floats away.

I've been reading up in anchors, and my LPS doesn't have lead wieghts, and tying them to a rock doesn't seem to work. The stem just falls off! So, I read that superglue is non toxic in the water after it dries?!
That this method is used in salt water tanks for coral?

Is this true? Could I just put a dab of superglue along the stem and rock? Since the stem won't grow thicker, will it work??

I think glue might be harmful to the delicate stem of the plant. I also wouldn't take the chance of using glue in the tank, only use AQ safe silicone.

I tie mine very loosely together with sewing thread and put as much of the stem as possible under the gravel and weigh it down with a small rock.
