Planting Guidance?

I got a few plants from someone who just sent me a bunch of trimmings from their tanks, and now I'm wanting to plant them but don't know what they all are or how to plant them. Is there some standard way to tell if they want their roots buried or if they're a column feeder? Or will I need to identify each plant and then Google it?

As far as I know, most plants prefer to have their roots burried. Exceptions are moss (will bury roots given the opportunity but will do just as well stuck to a rock) and plants with rhizomes (sort of a "main branch" from which both roots and leaves grow — same as for moss, will bury roots if given the chance, but for these you have to take care not to put the rhizome underground).

Yeah glue or tie the Javas to something. Simple as that. And usually SOME plants like Vallisneria like the roots juuust visible above the substrate.
