I just inherited a few of these myself, nice addition!
I put the small LR with Xenia's close to my large LR and those little guys have already attached. In a few days I'll just cut them and move the rest on the small rock to the other side and do it again.

You dont need to cut them off. They will eventually break off from the mother stock. Just place them close to a new rock so the stock is always touching the new rock and it will attach very soon. You should put the mother towords the top of the tank because the xenia will keep spreading and grow up so if its at the bottom then it will grow and cover the whole rock in a couple months

put it on a rock thats under another rock so that the stock touches the above rock (). kinda where the period is and just give it time. Mine took about 2 weeks then just took off completely until the 2 hurricanes killed(yes killed most of it, it can happen)
