Plastic Plant Question

Hey guys. I have a cheapy fish plant that doesn't have a base to hold it in down in the water without floating, and since I'm using aquarium marbles, it can't stay on the bottom. Is there a safe way to somehow attach it to a marble or the wall of the tank? Most of my plants have a plastic base to keep it down but this one doesn't. It is the plant in this picture, and don't worry the tank in the photo is not the tank he is in. :) Thanks.

I think letting it float might be cool but you could also get some aquarium silicone but at some places its more expensive than buying a new plant... Some hardware stores carry it for cheaper than petstores but I've never had any luck finding it at anywhere other than petco or petsmart

Plastic plants with points usually end up ripping their fins.. would just opt to leave it out and get some soft silk ones for their safety :)

I already have two soft plants in his tank, but I figured I'd put this one is just because I had it and didn't wanna throw it out. I guess I'll ditch it then. Thanks
