3 Pack Quick Hold Glue
INSTRUCTIONS FOR GLUING TILLANDSIAS
• Use glue in a well ventilated area (has a strong smell).
• Remove any dead leaves and/or roots on base of Tillandsia
• Squeeze a generous amount onto Tillandsia base or the surface of which it will sit on
• Place Tillandsia on object and hold for at least 5-10 minutes
• Depending on size of Tillandsia and amount used it can take longer for it to cure
• You can use blue painter tape or masking tape to hold Tillandsia in place instead of hand holding it (do not use any other types of tape)
• Tillandsia can be watered after 24 hours
Please Note: Different mounting surfaces will yield different results and some surfaces may not hold your air plant as well as others. A rougher surface is better. You might need to add a little extra glue after it’s dry. These are basic instructions and are only meant to be used as a guide. Experimenting is the best way to see what works best for you.
• You will receive 3 tubes
• Each tube contains 0.18 oz of glue

E6000 Quick Hold Glue is the best glue for mounting Tillandsias. It will not harm or kill air plants like other glues can (e.g. super glue or hot glue). Quick hold adhesive has a fast dry time. It sets within 1-2 minutes and fully dries within 24 hours. It has a gel like consistency and dries clear. Quick hold is multipurpose and can be used for gluing stones, plastic and wood crafts and can fix cracks in ceramic dishes, pottery and more. We use this glue to mount our Tillandsias to driftwood.

What are air plants? Their technical name is Tillandsia and they are one of the few plants out there that don’t require dirt to thrive. They are epiphytes which means they use their roots as grabbers to attach to trees and rocks instead of using them in the dirt. Some air plant species actually do use their roots in dirt but there aren’t too many like that. Air plants receive nutrients through their leaves by way of tiny little trichomes. Water and air both can have the nutrients they need to thrive and grow bigger. Air plants are very slow growing compared to most other plants and you might not see any noticeable growth for a year or two! Air plants are also related to the more commonly known bromeliad which you will see quite often at nurseries or grocery stores.
