Just scored a bunch from a friend that needed to cut his back. My question is how do I get them to stay put where I want them until they plant

You could use a rubber band,zip tie or the like. I did one by just wedging it in my rock other one I did with rubber band it was to tight and broke off . Or frag it to a small rock,shell or other object. Use super glue gel with ingredient cyanoacrylate . They use it at lfs for there frags. I personal like this brand.online has a lot of tips for fragging.

Yep we just bought a nice one and you can see the glue. I talk to the guy at the lfs and ask him about the coral glue he told me save my money and buy it else where.I always let mine dry for a little bit and put it in a bucket with some tank water. That's me though some people glue right in there tanks I'm not that brave yet.you can do it and it's fun.

Ya better get that glue if it's a Kenya tree. Lol. When you have had it for awhile it will start dropping branches and you will have a bunch of frags. My one Kenya tree is now 5. Lol. And soon to be more. But don't worry about it dropping branches. It's already starting to grow new ones.
