heater safety question

I have Whisper 5-15 gallon heaters, and I'm wondering if it's safe for them to be touching artificial plants and or the plastic walls of the Sterilite that my fishies' tanks will be sitting in. (the plant question is for in the spawning tank.)

My Whispers came with a black suction cup so they don't touch the sides. I have them in critter keepers. Heaters aren't supposed to be touching anything.

thanks. I lost one of the black suction cups, so one of the heaters only has one. The very end of it, which is covered with with a black rubber "cage" is touching the side of the container because it is off balance. I'll have to try to fix that somehow.

I think you can get some of those suction cups at the petstore. I got some at Petsmart.

I now have another question. I just discovered that both of my heaters have condensation inside of them. Is this normal? Do I need to get rid of them? they are a few years old.
