I think R&D got the sentence scrambled. It should read,

"It will NOT last, don't try it."

Fiberglass is not a material where rock/tile of any kind will normally stick
Usually the fiberglass is not "solid" & will move a little as you stand/move/walk on it

That causes the tiling grout/etc to crack

OMGOODNESS! That made me tired just looking! Guess I don't have any energy left to tile now-time for a nap...! Looks great though! Can I lay something on the fiberglass floor and then lay some stone ya think?
