Justin at Ocean Aquarium in San Francisco uses superglue to secure java fern and anubias to wood and rocks. The advantage is no tying, no threads to look at, and the superglue adheres even when the plant and wood are damp. The stuff is toxic though, but he hasn't seen any problems because of it.
I've used Crazy Glue on a moss wall in a tank before with no problems, and it was a shrimp-only tank at that. It's an old reef/frag technique that really comes in handy when a zip tie won't fit or there isn't a clear or inconspicuous way to use string.

That is very strange you can't grow java moss. Sometimes it takes mosses a long time to adapt to new conditions, and sometimes the temperatures are too high. I had a similar experiene with Taiwan moss (or maybe it was Singapore or Christmas) - A lot of it browned out but a few months later, it came roaring back in a big way.
