Super Glue & Plants...

I've recently been watching a lot of nano set-ups on Youtube & the norm seems to be using super glue to attach plants/ferns/moss to driftwood & rocks.

I'm just curious & concerned that the super glue may dissolve toxic chemicals into the water but as I mentioned it does seem to be the norm..?

One person did make the comment that super glue dries faster in a humid environment & he would spray water directly onto the plant/fern/moss the moment he glued it to a rock. Then within minutes the glued plant would be submerged in water.

Is this the only beneficial reason to use super glue?

I'm curious as there's "fish tank friendly" silicone that can just as easily be used to secure plants to surfaces.

There's water safe super glue (Gorilla makes one), it's probably cheaper than the silicone. Who knows if it is actually 100% safe. I've always just used fishing line.
