    I saw where someone used super glue to attach plants to wood instead of thread. Does that really work? If so can someone tell me the right way to do it? Does the wood have to dry out first?
    I have several plants overgrown with rhizomes floating all over. I need to attach it to the wood with the rest. It is looking very messy the way it is.
    Any info is much appreciated.
    Thank you

    It helps to dry the wood first but super glue is safe and you can glue plants to almost anything including lengths of pvc pipe that can be pushed in the gravel or moved around as desired. Super glue dries pretty quickly too so the plants don't need to be out of water for long.

    If you are concerned about the glue then use string, fishing line, rubber bands, basically anything that is non toxic. :)
