I've heard of people using super glue to attach java moss and java fern to logs and rocks and whatnot, if it is cured completely (I'd wait 24 hrs) it should be fine.

Make sure you get the GEL super glue (or krazy glue gel).

I'm not sure if that one is safe or not...maybe someone else here has experience with it. Here's what I meant:
Amazon.com: Elmer's E617 Super Glue Gel 0.07-Ounce, 2-Pack: Home Improvement

it might take a while with sand paper, but yeah you can sand terra cotta... just make sure not to inhale the dust. if you are wanting to quickly round off corners, try rubbing it on the sidewalk like chalk And I wouldn't use the gorilla glue, you can find super glue for a dollar or two at walmart...

Hmmm, I believe its aquarium safe, but I don't know how well it will hold on the clay once the clay gets waterlogged... maybe try gluing two scrap pieces together and soak them to see if it holds?
