I recently bought dwarf baby tears var. 'cuba attached to tufa rock, so I would assume you could attach HC with a net and get the same result. Just make sure the rock is porous like lava rock.

Honestly the second and the third pic look like the same plant but from different agles. Both resemble alteranthera var. reinicki (not positive on spelling). Ammania tends to have a much larger stem.
