basically you just stick them in the ground.
plants like java ferns and anubias should not be buried in the gravel. the thick root called the rhizome should remain above the gravel.
since the stems do not have roots they will have the tendency to float up out of the gravel. it just takes some persistence to get them to stay; try to stick them as far into the gravel as you can, even if it means burying a couple of the lower leaves. a rubber band would help, but you need to be careful not to tie it too tightly, otherwise you'd crush the plant tissues.
