Do you have to tie java fern to driftwood or rock?

Do you really have to tie the java fern to a piece of driftwood or rock. Can you let it sit on top of the substrate? I just bought a java fern and right now, it's sitting on top of my substrate. It's doesn't float to the top. Is this okay?

It will work as long as you don't bury the rhizome. You can also use cotton thread to tie down ferns to rocks/driftwood. It disinegrates in a few months, and then the plant is usually attached by then.

Java Fern will do great in substrate-- if you are careful not to cover the rhizome. I grow my Java ferns in the substrate and on driftwood, and both do equally well.
