Best Glue for Terracotta Plant Pots

Terracotta plant pots, while beautiful, can be difficult to repair because of how heavy the material is. Because of that, you need a heavy-duty adhesive that can handle a lot of pressure and still hold strong. For those reasons, the best glue for terracotta plant pots is Loctite Marine Epoxy. It might be strange to use a marine epoxy to fix a terracotta pot, but because marine epoxies are designed to be extra durable and handle constant pressure for being submerged in water, they are actually some of the best to use on terracotta plant pots. Loctite Marine Epoxy is one of the cheapest and most accessible on the market and will definitely be able to hold your plant pot together.
The best overall glue for plant pots is Gorilla 2 Part Epoxy. The best adhesive for ceramic pots is E6000. The best glue for porcelain pots is Pratley Quickest Clear. And the best adhesive for terracotta pots is Loctite Marine Epoxy.
It depends. If the broken piece is small, then glue is definitely enough, but larger and heavier pieces might not be able to be held by glue alone. Large, heavy pieces of terracotta may need to be wired together along with glue.
It takes Gorilla 2 Part Epoxy a full 24 hours to cure completely. After applying Gorilla 2 Part Epoxy to a plant pot, give it the full 24 hours before you use the pot again in order to ensure the best results.
Yes, E6000 can be used on outdoor plant pots. Not only is E6000 waterproof, but it is also temperature resistant, so it can handle any climate as well as the moisture of any plant.
No, Pratley Quickest Clear runs a little thinner, so it is not advised to be used for pots where you need a thicker adhesive to repair your pieces.
Loctite Marine Epoxy, if stored properly in a dry and room temperature environment, should last around 1 year from the date it is shipped.
