i used uncolored, undyed cotton thread from my moms sewing supply stash. I read that it usually deteriorates by the time the roots take hold so basically, no cutting or ugly rubberbands. A lot of people use fishing line, and stuff as well!:biggrin:

Black cotton thread is a good suggestion, as is clear fishing line. The advantage with cotton threading is that it deteriorates by the time the roots take hold, as Kittysnax mentioned.

In addition, many people use cyanoacrylate (super) glue; the gel type is especially effective for gluing plants to driftwood/rocks.

I've used small hair ties that don't have the metal clip. While I'm sure that there are better solutions (the cotton thread sounds the best to me) I felt too lazy to actually bother to do that. The elastic keeps a good hold on the plant, but you can still move it if you want or need to. Also, the elastic eventually weakens, so I just break it to remove it.
Like I said, not the best option, but it's what I do.
