The plastic used to make the stems is the wrong type for super-glue type glues. You can recognize them by the smell ;) You might want to try the standard model plastic cement. Its slower to dry, but reacts with more plastics to give you the bond you want. This stuff has a citrus smell to it. Home Depot also has some glue that can glue glass to glass (gasp!), perhaps this is what you need?
