My driftwood piece is so large that it took me hours to wrestle it into my
aquarium, and I'm reluctant to remove it for any reason.  As a result I've
been frustrated in the past with attachmenting plants to it below the water
surface.  the solution is push-pins.  I use plastic push-pins to attach Java
fern, Christmas moss and the hairnets that hold down my Riccia to the
driftwood.  They're cheap, easy to install, , can be positioned so they're
not visibile, there's no underwater knot tying, and they're easy to remove
once the plant has taken hold.  Worth a shot!
