You might have a juvenile java then- and the seller might have sold you one without the rhizome. In which case, you will have a dandy old time trying to get it grow. Some stores sell them this way for profit- but in your case you definitely want to leave the bottom area of the plant un-buried so it has a chance of growing.
What kind of light are you using?

whats the importance of the rhizome?

I have a zoomed ultrasun bulb 10 watts

also my driftwood arrived ... pretty sure its too big to really fit the decor of my tank ... after my cycle figures itself out i may have to do some rearranging

Saw it in half !! lol

That zoomed is 6500K so it's prefect for growing plants :)

The rhizome is the heart of the plant- it's pretty important. You're in luck, however, because they will re-grow a rhizome if it's allowed plenty of light. You will need to take it out of the gravel and place it close enough to the surface as to receive 12-13 hours of direct light a day.

Beautiful setup! Where'd you get the wood? I want to get one for mine, but I'm not sure what's safe.

Its Mopani wood from Amazon.com ... Its just driftwood. I boiled it to leach some tannins out and put it in ... Its a naturally dense wood so I didnt have to weight it :)
