I don't trust super glues and I never manage to mix epoxy so it
hardens. Are there other glues that anyone could recommend?
Now that my Internet and e-mail has stabilized after hurricane
Wilma, it is my great pleasure to again ask for and offer advice to
one of my main passions - Orchid.
Please don't give up on epoxy. First, never mix the two parts on
paper or other porous surfaces, such as cardboard. The resin and
hardener will absorb into it differently due to their slightly
different viscosity and may not harden properly. A small plastic
baggie, coffee can lid, etc., will do fine. The same goes for what
you use to stir them together. Chopsticks, toothpics, rolled-up
paper, etc., will also act similarly to a porous surface. I use a
metal paper clip, folded double at one end to stir, and the other end
to apply. This is the best way I've found to keep the resin and
It's great to be back,
