Default Attaching Java Fern to drift wood

I made a trade today. I swapped out a nice big softball size chunk of
pipe organ coral for two large chunks of ready to use drift
wood........so, whats the best method of attaching java ferns etc to
the drift wood, rubber bands? I managed to thread some roots of
java ferns through some splits and holes etc, and stuck other JFerns
here and there with rubber bands.......so is rubber bands the way to
go or what? The rubber bands are not on really tight, to the point
they cut into the roots etc, but sufficient to hold the fern in place.
I had to make space as my Helvola lilly is going crazy in growing in
the display tank, so I had to make some floor space and also space for
light ......I just planted a few onion bulbs in the tank the other day
and already they are approx 6" in length.....

I forgot more about ponds and koi than I'll ever know!

I've tried cotton but it didn't really work.....I still get the Java
ferns and anubias drifting off into the great beyond once the cotton
rots down.....maybe the same will apply to rubber bands as they will
also degrade....my best successes have been when I've just plain pinned
down the roots on the substrate with a bit of driftwood or a rock...I
wanted to move some the other day in my 5gall tank and just couldn't
uproot it off the driftwood...but of course some of this depends on the
fish that you keep - my Clowns and Yoyos are b*ggers for sending the
stuff flying.....I have heard very good reports of using fishing line to
do the job....it is clear so not too much of an issue on the eye.....one
day I'll make it into an angling shop and buy some but IIRC as a keen
fisherman you should have some lying around....

Default Attaching Java Fern to drift wood - WARNING!!!!!!!!!

WARNING!!!!!!!!!!

Some people were not warned until too late:

As one of the main "target victims" of Roy "Tristan" Hauer's constant
personal
attacks and endless slander, I feel obliged to warn anyone posting here or
on any of these NGs that the ~Roy~ posting on rec.ponds is the SAME ~Roy~
posting on
other aquarium groups including rec.ponds.moderated.

He also uses the name "Tristan" and he impersonates innocent
people he "has it in for," posting smut and inane messages in their
names/nyms.

Please be advised if you should you say something to him or
someone else on these groups, innocent as it may be that he takes exception
to, you are opening yourself to the worst verbal abuse and vicious slander
imaginable. He will follow you from one group to another to harass, slander
and degrade you - and trash the group. He will nym-shift to avoid
killfiles. It's truly the worst case of "Usenet Rage" I have seen since I
came online 11 years ago. It goes beyond trolling and into the realms of
insanity. No one, male or female is immune from this man's uncontrollable
rage - he's like a bomb, you never know what can set him off. No one
deserves to endure the abuse of this individual so I give you fair warning.

**USE EXTREME CAUTION** if you reply to any of his messages.

These are just a few examples of what you can expect from Mr. Hauer.
Remember, he can be your friend one minute and the next....... well, see
for yourselves. No one can justify what this person posts.

I use rubber bands on a log and it works fine. By the time the rubber band
breaks, or I remove it, the java fern has rooted into every crevice on the
log.

I've got one 8"-10" log that started out with one small java fern on it. Now
you can't see the log and I've moved several plants off of it and into other
tanks.
