Can I attach plants to this?

I just bought this for my tank ... It is resin however not wood ... Is there anyway to plant a little on it or should I leave it as is?



40 gallon - Misc fish
15 gallon - Axolotl
5 gallon - Betta and ADF
20 long - Hatchling turtles and corydoras.

Soon to change I am sure

Given enough time, plants such as Java Fern and Moss will eventually attach to your ornament.

They're not going to be able to latch on as well as they would with wood, but no reason at all you can't mount plants on it. Not much different than mounting on rock and I do that all the time.

Superglue--the gel formulation is easiest to work with--is going to be your best bet for this.
