I had the same problem. I placed a small stone over one of the bottom leaves until it took root.

It roots quickly.

Plant stem plants as deep as you can, preferably at an angle, so more of the stem is under the substrate. I never have floating stems when I do that carefully, using tweezers to poke the plant down into the substrate.

use tweezers and plant it as deep as you can then kind of wiggle (hard to explain kind of like squeeze, un squeeze while giving it a light shake in quick strokes)the tweezers back out slowly so they will help the substrate pack in around the stem. kinda like a micro version of tamping in a fencepost as you backfill.
