Tie it on top of the slate? It's not buried put it in the tank let it slowly sink and once it hit bottom it scooted it to the corner.

That's ok look up what a rhizome is. As long as it gets light, it's fine. Java ferns don't use their roots to absorb nutrients but instead use them to anchor themselves to things like rocks, sand and wood.

I looked up rhizome. That's a pretty cool rooting system. Here's what the plant looks like. I have more small pieces of granite that I could put under and tie it to. Don't know that I'd like it on the slate being its in the center of the tank.

That would work. Leaving it as is will also.

Anacharis is beautiful in bunches in the corners of the tank or on the back wall.

I might look tomorrow at the LFS. They were out of stock on a lot of stuff. I can't even express how thankful I am for the help and advice. I ask here and know I'll get a pretty honest answer. I've even began to quiz the people at the store. Funny what they'll say just to sale you stuff....

Yeah it is amazing sometimes what some staff at pet stores will say. Not all of them are unknowledgable though, but ya gotta be real careful how you take the answers/info...always research what they tell you! You can never go wrong in that case!! I am sure not all of the mis-information is on-purpose. Sometimes folks are trying to help.
When I first started, I got a ton of mis-information from a guy at my LFS. Man my tank was a crowded mess! Too many fish, too many species, too many too many! I had been doing research, but trusted him more for some reason
