For large plants fishing line works well and isn't very visible.

For small plants i use superglue which works very well

Bucephalandra are another epiphyte with many varieties, hygrophila pinnatifida is another

Many people are also unaware that many/all stem plants can be attached to wood/rock. They won't attach to it with roots like epiphytes but will happily grow like that if secured properly provided there are sufficient nutrients in the water.

@billfish

For smaller plants/moss I use an aquarium safe superglue gel, one that has an active constituent of Cyanoacrylate. It basically becomes inert when moist or wet on the wood/rock which does a good job attaching the plant. Also make sure it’s a superglue gel, I recently purchased some from Bunnings.For larger plants I use fishing line and remove once attached. The above options have worked for me.

Cheers
