You can use a plant safe glue, such as e6000, which is waterproof. It’s important to leave the glue on the base of the plant to dry for a few hours so that it doesn’t get glue on the leaves.
If you are using a glue that is not water-based, make sure that it is completely dry before using it. If you do not have access to a dryer, it may be best to use an air-dryer.
