Anubias and superglue?

I have read that it is possible to superglue Anubias to wood, stone etc using the plants rhizome so I'm going to give it a try myself, only I can't remember what glue was mentioned in the post I read (or where the post is).

I have also read that there is a type of superglue you can use that will set underwater so I don't have to drain my tank...I'm not talking about fixing an odd plant to a small, easily removable piece of wood so this technique would be the way to go for me.

Is anyone aware of which kind of glue I should buy for this?

The cheap dollar tree glue is what I use. When you glue it hold it in place and put it directly in the water for some reason the water helps it cure faster.

I use black thread to tie it to wood as well sometimes my glue looks messy and I don't want to use moss to cover it up.

Gel superglue works best if you're applying it under water. Any brand works!

Oh so I can apply it straight to the wood whilst it's still under the water, I thought I'd have to apply it to the plants first then try and place them which I can already see problems with!

Thanks for the help here!
