When fixing your plumb dots to a blockwork wall thats being cement rendered, what do you use to fix the plumb dots to the blockwork? Will a small amount of render do the job? Cant see it being grabby/sticky enough to hold the wood in place - could be wrong of course.

Am I right in thinking that render can go straight onto new 7N Block walls? I was gonna wet the wall first and apply the scratch coat straight to it - i.e. no SBR or slurry coat, will that be ok?
