My attempt at attaching Anubias to driftwood

I have a piece of driftwood with a perfectly round hole in it that appeared to have had a plant or such in it before. I love the look of anubias when attatched to driftwood so I found a nice size anubias from my collection that would fit and kind of just put the roots in all the way and let the be free from the bottom. It's been about a week so I'm assuming it will take a little while before it attatched but even as is I think it looks gorgeous and will be a gorgeous centerpiece when I set up my new 55g planted

Hooray! I've heard of people using fishing line too to help it stay on. Personally, I just cram it down in a hole (like you did).

Seems to be working this far and I think it's a very attractive piece if I don't say so myself haha.

Krazy Glue the gel kind that dries clear. Best stuff ever and I've never had a problem.
