cool thanks for the advice!
also, a random unrelated question..
the java fern I purchased was wrapped up with a rubber band around the rhizome. should I remove said rubber band?
I would remove rubberband and tie the Java fern to wood with thread or fishing line.
Some use super glue to attach to wood,other's staple it to wood.
I prefer the thread or fishing line, unless the wood piece was very large and more than one or two plant's were to be attached.
