Question How to glue plants on rocks?

I am planning to set up a tank for the first time with live plants and I have a few rocks. I heard that plants such as anubias and java ferns do great glued on to rocks or driftwood than planted in substrate. I have a large lava rock that I'm going to put in my tank and would love attach some plants to it.

My question is, how do I glue on the plants to the rocks? My lava rock has many holes and crevices so can I just put a little glue in the crevice and put the plant there?

Also, where do I put the glue onto the plant? I know the rhizome is off limits.

Any other tips is appreciated!
