Unfortunately, it's sometimes tough to get delicate plants like HC to take root unless they've got smaller particles to grab onto. I've never had luck with HC in Flourite or similar (shape/weight/etc) substrates.

Topping it with sand may not work too well, as the sand will tend to settle beneath it.

Are you keeping the HC trimmed low to the substrate? Or is it just floating up when you're working in the substrate surrounding it?
