Would wood-glue like Elmer's be toxic after it dries? I want to create a realy neato branch by glueing two pieces of grapevine together. What do you thing?

I don't think it would be toxic. However, I think the Pro-bond would hold up better than regular wood glue. I've used it on cork and branches in my vivs with no problems.
Oh and I don't know if you've heard but grapevine doesn't hold up in wet, humid conditions. Haven't tried it personally, but have heard of others having bad luck with mold and such.
Good luck,

I agree. Aliphatic resin wood glue is not waterproof and only some is water resistant. It will be guaranteed to fall apart in a wet, humid vivarium. A urethane glue is better and hot glue also works well.

Do you think the mold growth on the grapevine wood would go away after a while like it does with the jungle-pods?
