Heater/Plastic plants...?

Today I emptied my tank, cleaned everything with HOT water, and put new water in. I decided to rearrange the way I had the plastic plants arranged. My question is, will having the heater too close the the plants be a bad idea? becuase the way I have it now, one of the plants may occasionally bump into the heater.
What do you think? should I move things around so that the plants are further from the heater?

If it's not "resting on" the heater, I wouldn't freak out about it. 8)

If your heater is hot enough to burn your plastic plants then all your fish would be dead before that happened.
