I attached a few plants to some driftwood using rubber bands, that way i can just snip the bands when the time is right.

They have been on the driftwood for almost 2 weeks. How long does it take for them to attach?

In my experience, I have had them attach in as little as 2 weeks or as long as a month. I'm guessing growth rate has something to do with it. The quicker attachment was in the co2 injected tank.

Test them. Pull the rubber band and see if the roots hold. If not, just let the rubber band go and let them sit for another 2 weeks.

I use the plastic coated wires similar to the ones used to seal garbage bags. They are easy to loosen, and reattach.
