attaching plants to driftwood

I just got some anubias and want to attach a coffeefolia to a piece of driftwood.
I've read around a little and saw to use fishingline or cottong thread to hold it to the wood. I went with cotton since it seems softer and natural and I have head it will dissolve on its own if I don't do anything with it.

Now the question is....what technique is best? should just the rhizome be tied down, or all the roots as well?

How long does it usually take for a plant to adhere to the wood?

I just use either cotton string or rubber bands if I am lazy. Anubias will attach at different rated depending on its growth. In my tanks which are not low light, it takes only a few weeks to get a decent hold.
