I've used cyanoactylate glue to attach java ferns to rocks and shells. 
Also, Gorilla Glue™ (a urathane glue) works well, but is harder to use
because it takes a long time to dry.  There's not much to it; these glues
are moisture curing. Dry everything with a paper towel.  The plants will
still be damp.  And then glue it!  I use "ZAP CA+" glue from a hobby shop. 
It is a gap-filling CA glue that works a lot better for this application
than the watery thin kind.  I just did some java fernlets last week on an
oyster shell.

Best regard, :-)
