Rubber bands

Is it safe to use rubber bands to secure plants to rocks and such? Or will the rubber disintegrate and cause harm?

yup rubber bands are fine! I use them all the time they really don't disintegrate unless you keep them in for like... ever. The most I had one in was 5 months and it's still fine, still stretchy!

lmao! Yes I've done the thread as well, no fun XD

Why are you attaching a sword to a rock? Those can be planted right up to the crown and I don't think they'll attach to other things like Java Fern and Anubias will.
